With many anticipating a big year ahead for the Philadelphia Phillies prior to the commencement of the 2024 MLB season, they have gotten off to a less-than-stellar start. They currently sport a 6-6 record following two weeks of action.

After dropping their first two series to the Atlanta Braves and Cincinnati Reds, the Phillies managed to gain some redemption by winning both series on the most recent road trip against the Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals.

It's not exactly the ideal start the Phillies had envisioned in their quest to return to the postseason for the third consecutive year. At least they now have a little momentum they can build off of, as they somehow still sit in second place in the NL East division despite the underwhelming start.

In the midst of their current roller coaster start, there have been some Phillies who have been playing some of their best baseball from the get-go, whereas there have been others who have been underperforming quite a bit out of the gate. Because of that, the Phillies may want to adjust some playing time accordingly to help position the team to have the best chance at winning every time out and get them back on the right track.

Let's take a closer look at two Phillies players who have earned more playing time due to their exceptional play, along with one Phillies player who should have their playing time cut back a bit until they're out of their early funk.
