4: Rhys Hoskins LF
This was a move Kapler made that I really agreed with. In 35 games in the cleanup spot, Hoskins has posted a .302/.438/.560 slash line with 25 RBI compared to .238/.338/.438 and 51 RBI in his 77 games out of the two hole. Hoskins drives in runs and draws walks and at higher rate batting fourth. It puts an RBI guy in the optimal position to drive in runs. This move would be beneficial to Hoskins individually and the team.
5: Nick Williams RF
This is another one that does not require too much of an explanation. Since the All-Star Break Williams is batting .306 with six home runs. He has batted .278 in 36 games in the five spot. He has earned the playing time that was once given to the now Ironpig Aaron Altherr.
6: Maikel Franco 3B
Gone are the days of thinking Franco should be shipped out this season. Franco has posted the highest average on the team this year while also hitting 20 home runs in the midst of a career year. His average is up 51 points compared to 2017, his OBP is up 42 points and SLG is up a walloping 75 points. Franco has performed very well in a career-defining season as he tries to cement himself as the Phillies third baseman of the future.
