Bryson Stott, 2B
The Phillies organization has found a special player in Bryson Stott. He has developed into a fine hitter and fielder during his two seasons in the major leagues. The second baseman followed up his rookie year with a slash line of .280/.329/.419 in 585 plate appearances during the 2023 regular season.
He received a nomination for a Gold Glove Award, which went to the Chicago Cubs' Nico Hoerner.
Stott showed his ability as a fielder with only five errors committed, which was one of the fewest among players at his position with 100-plus games started in 2023. He represents one of the key players who have helped turn the Phillies' defense around from one of the league's worst fielding clubs a few years prior.
For most of the year, the second baseman was the club's most dependable player overall in terms of his success on both offense and defense.
September was Stott's worst month hitting as he had a .181/.245/.255 line in 94 plate appearances. He had mixed results offensively in the postseason as his struggles appeared to carry over. He did have a key grand slam against the Miami Marlins in Game 2 of the Wild Card Series that helped Philadelphia advance to the National League Division Series against the Atlanta Braves.
The future is bright for the Las Vegas, Nevada native as he enters his third season in 2024.
