First baseman Jesus Aguilar has been a solid all-around hitter for Milwaukee with Eric Thames out with a thumb injury. He’s second on the team in most offensive categories with a .295 batting average, 10 home runs, 32 RBI, and 46 hits in 54 games.
He’s not immune to the Brewers offensive woes, hitting .211 during their June road trip with a three hit game with a home run against Chicago.
Aguilar could come up big in this series as he’s known to hit the long ball on a consistent basis. According to FanGraphs, he’s behind Joey Gallo with the second-longest average hit distance at 232.9 feet.
He’s 0-6 against the Phillies in his career, a solid sign coming into the homestand.
