No. 5: Jim Eisenreich (1993 – 1996)

Having only played four seasons with the Phillies, Eisenreich left his mark as one of the best pure hitters in franchise history. On top of that, he left as one of the most beloved. His contributions in the outfield platoon for the 1993 team were extremely significant.

He hit .318 with an .808 OPS in 153 games in 1993 and followed that with averages of .300, .316 and .361 from 1994 through 1996. Eisenreich was also solid in the field, committing only seven errors playing right field and left field in 499 games in Philadelphia.

Eisenreich was rather quiet in the 1993 NLCS, but he did everything he could to help the team in the World Series. He drove in seven runs with six hits, including a home run, and two walks.

Eisenreich ended his time in Philadelphia with a .324 average, .833 OPS and struck out only 143 times in 1367 at-bats.
