1: Roman Quinn CF
Sometimes you have to play the hot hand. Since joining the club, Roman Quinn has posted a .293 average while striking out just five times in 41 at-bats. Out of 20 games, Quinn has started just six times, mainly being used as a pinch hitter or defensive replacement. Quinn, known for his blazing speed, has stolen three bases in his six starts showing the ability to get on base and create damage. With his wheels and big bats behind him, Quinn would be a run machine.
2: Justin Bour 1B
Bour has failed to put up the same numbers as he did in his career season just one year ago. The lefty batted .289 with 25 home runs just one season ago, now hitting a struggling .226. Yet a common theory about Bour’s dip this season is the bats surrounding him. One year ago, his lineup protection featured Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna, all who left the Marlins last offseason. Putting Bour back into a situation where he would be protected by the heart of the Phillies lineup could rejuvenate the first baseman heading down the stretch.
3: Wilson Ramos C
The All-Star catcher has certainly made his impact on the Phillies since joining them last week. He has gone 7-17 with five extra-base hits during his first five games with the club. Ramos is the only .300 hitter on the roster. This one does not require a ton of explanation; just hope Ramos continues to swing it well for the Phils.
