3 – Darren Daulton (1983 – 1997)

More from Phillies All-Time Lists

Daulton would likely rank higher, but injuries sapped much of the early part of his career. He was a three-time All-Star, leading the league in RBI in 1992 with 109. Daulton had a great three-year stretch from 1992 – 1994 with an OPS near or above .900 each of those seasons. He ranks first among catchers in team history in walks, second in home runs, third in RBI and fourth in games and doubles.

Daulton was behind the plate for Philadelphia’s improbable 1993 World Series run. He was an integral part, delivering during the regular season and the National League Championship Series. Daulton was able to win a World Series in 1997 with the Marlins before retiring.
