NEW YORK, NY – JULY 30: Jimmy Rollins /

Jimmy Rollins is a surprising member of the Phillies all-time home run list

9. Jimmy Rollins (216 Home runs in 2,090 games)

Jimmy Rollins. A former MVP, Silver Slugger, four time Gold Glover, three time All Star, and oh yeah, 2008 World Series champion. Don’t let that distract you from the fact that he is also 9th in home runs in franchise history.

Rollins made his MLB debut in 2000, playing in 14 games with zero home runs while racking up 17 hits. Following his debut he finished third the next year in Rookie of the Year voting.

J-Roll only averaged 16 home runs a game in his 17 year career (14 with Phillies), but his longevity in Philadelphia puts him just in the top ten in franchise home runs.

His 2007 MVP season was his best and most powerful year, Rollins played all 162 games while slashing .296/.344/.531 with 30 home runs. He had an oWAR of 5.7 and a dWAR of 1.3. Not only that but he became the only player in the history of the game to join the 30-20-30-30 club. 30 doubles, 20 triples, 30 home runs, and steal 30 bags.

Along with that he also became the fourth player in the 20-20-20-20 club with the stats above. The only other players in that club are Willie Mays, Frank Schulte, and Curtis Granderson also in 2007.

8. Cy Williams (217 Home runs in 1,463 games)

Cy Williams was dealt by the Chicago Cubs to Philadelphia in December of 1917. His first two seasons as a Phillie were all but powerful as he hit a total of 15 long balls.

Williams big breakout year when it comes to power came in 1923 when he launched 41 home runs in a single season. That year he slashed .293/.371/.576, good for an OPS of .947, but surprisingly those stats didn’t land him in the MVP voting that season.

Cy played 13 years in Philadelphia ending his tenure with a slash line of .306/.380/.500 hitting 217 home runs and leading the league in home runs four times.
