Post “dead ball” era:

Honorable mention:

Cy Williams (1918 – 1930)

Although Williams played one season in the “dead ball” era, the bulk of his career and success came after. He lead the league in home runs three times and is fifth among outfielders in franchise history with 217 home runs. Williams hit for average as well, compiling a .306 average on 1553 hits.

Lenny Dykstra (1990 – 1996)

Dykstra was one of the key pieces to the 1993 NL Championship team when he lead the league in runs, hits and walks. He also hit .325 with a .418 on-base percentage in 1990. However, much of the rest of his time in Philadelphia was injury-plagued. Certainly Dykstra would have made the top-ten had he been able to stay on the field.

Jayson Werth (2007 – 2010)

Werth hit 24 home runs for the World Series championship team in 2008 and belted 36 home runs in 2009 and 27 in 2010.  An All-Star in 2009, Werth could have made the top ten had his tenure in Philadelphia been longer.
