The Philadelphia Phillies have done relatively well after starting the first week of the season slowly. They have received contributions from star players such as Trea Turner, Bryce Harper, and Zack Wheeler, as anticipated.

Brandon Marsh and Alec Bohm have also done well over the first month of the season. Even Johan Rojas, who had a slash line of .167/.239/.190 on April 17, has shown improvement recently.

Heading into Saturday's game against the San Diego Padres, Rojas has a .250/.308/.306 line. In his last 15 games, the center fielder is hitting .340 with a .797 OPS and has demonstrated his speed with six stolen bases.

Spencer Turnbull's performance has been another pleasant surprise for the Phillies. He has made five starts in place of injured starter Taijuan Walker. The Demopolis, Alabama native is 2-0 with a 1.33 ERA in 27 innings. He has a 0.85 WHIP with 30 strikeouts, allowing four earned runs and 10 walks.

While getting production from the superstar players will play a huge part in whether the Phillies win the World Series in 2024, getting consistent production from players such as Marsh, Rojas, Bohm, and Whit Merrifield will also make a difference during the club's pursuit of a championship.

Getting Bryson Stott going will be helpful, as there were times in 2023 when he was the Phillies' best overall player, offensively and defensively. He has had a slow start, slashing .221/.287/.299 entering the action on April 27.

The year is long, and every player will have multiple periods of slumps and times when they are doing well. Who can continue their hot streaks beyond the first month of the regular season?

Let's take a look at two Phillies players whose hot starts will continue and one who will fade.
