Three former Philadelphia Phillies players still remain in contention for the 2019 World Series championship.

We are well into the 2019 Major League Baseball postseason. The Washington Nationals lead their NLCS series against the St. Louis Cardinals, 2-0, while the New York Yankees powered past the Houston Astros on Saturday to grab a 1-0 series advantage.

Given it has been eight years since the Philadelphia Phillies have competed for the league’s World Series championship, it has become routine to check in on former players who have donned red pinstripes.

Among the Championship Series rosters of the four remaining teams, the following three are former Phillies, whose careers combine for: 40 seasons, four All-Star appearances, one Silver Slugger Award and a previously earned World Series championship.
