More from That Balls Outta Here

Center field – Lenny Dykstra (1989)

Although Dykstra was the key component for the 1993 National League champions, Dykstra’s performance in 1989 was the worst of his career. In 352 at-bats, he hit only .222 with a .297 on-base percentage. Normally a competent base-stealer, Dystkra was successful in only 17 of 28 attempts. Despite three All-Star appearances with the Phillies, his 1989 goes down as the worst by a center fielder for the team over the past 40 years.

Right field – Ruben Amaro Jr. (1992)

The former Phillies general manager spent eight years in the Major Leagues, five with the Phillies.  Solid in a backup role, Amaro had a poor season in his first full season in the Major Leagues. In 126 games, Amaro hit .219 with 21 extra base hits and a .651 OPS in 374 at-bats. Amaro also played for the Angels and Indians and retired as a player following the 1998 season with 218 hits and a .235 batting average.
