2 – Bobby Abreu (1998 – 2006)

Abreu may be a surprise on this list at first glance, but his numbers stack up among the best in franchise history. Abreu hit above .300 six times, had seven seasons with 20 or more home runs, seven seasons with 100 or more walks and four seasons of 100 or more RBI. A two time All-Star, Abreu is sixth among Phillies outfielders with 195 home runs, first in doubles with 348 an first in stolen bases with 254. Add in a .303 batting average and .928 OPS and Abreu’s number two ranking is justified.

1- Chuck Klein (1928 – 1933, 1936 – 1944)

We have to go back before World War II to find the top outfielder in franchise history. Klein lead the league in home runs four times and three times lead in RBI. He was runner up for MVP in 1931 and 1933, winning the award in 1932. Klein surpassed 200 hits six times and five times knocked in over 100 runs. His .326 batting average and .935 OPS are first among Phillies outfielders in the post “dead ball” era. Klein ranks no worse than fourth in runs, hits, doubles, triples, home runs, RBI, batting average and OPS among outfielders in franchise history.
