Phillies history: Top ten seasons by role players since 1980
1984 – Sixto Lezcano
Lezcano was near the end of a solid 12-year Major League career when the Phillies acquired him late in 1983. His career-season was just four years prior after batting .321 with 28 home runs and 101 RBI with the Brewers, earning a Gold Glove award and 15th in National League MVP voting.
As a platoon right fielder, left fielder and pinch hitter with the Phillies in 1984, Lezcano provided solid fielding, a strong arm, and right-handed power. In 256 at-bats, he had a .277 batting average with 14 home runs, 40 RBI and a capable .851 OPS.
Lezcano was out of Philadelphia the following season and hit only .207 with three home runs in 153 at-bats with the Pirates in 1985 before retiring.
1984 – Tim Corcoran
Corcoran joined Lezcano as one of the key players off the bench for the 1984 Phillies. He spent parts of five Major League seasons with the Tigers and Twins before appearing in three games for the Phillies in 1983 but enjoyed his best season in the majors in 1984.
A dependable pinch-hitter and reserve first baseman, right fielder and left fielder, Corcoran hit .341 with 13 doubles and five home runs in 208 at-bats. His average, .440 on-base percentage, .486 slugging percentage, and .925 OPS were are tops for his career.
Corcoran saw nearly as much playing time in 1985 but hit only .214 with no home runs. After seven at-bats without a hit in six games with the Mets in 1986, Corcoran retired.
