Best: Matt Vierling

Matt Viering had an absolutely stellar June and proved that he’s worthy of more playing time.

Over 17 games, he hit .313/.365/.542 with a .907 OPS, two doubles, and three home runs. After only 10 total bases between April and May, he had 26 in June.

Worst: Odúbel Herrera

Speaking of outfielders, as Vierling heated up, Odúbel Herrera cooled off.

Over 20 games in June, he hit .183/.246/.283 with a .530 OPS, all considerably lower marks than the previous two months of the season. While he did walk more and strike out less than he did in May, he also only went 11-for-60 with no extra-base hits except a pair of home runs.

If the Phillies can find a trade partner for him, they should.
