No 5: Alec Bohm

2023 was a career year for Alec Bohm. One year removed from his infamous "I [expletive] hate this place" statement during a frustrating moment in 2022, the 27-year-old reminded everyone why the Phillies drafted him in the first round (No. 3) in the 2018 MLB Draft. The potential was always there, and 2023 was the season he finally unlocked it.

Bohm emerged as a legit middle-of-the-order run producer for the Phillies last season. In 145 games, Bohm hit .272, with career highs in home runs (20) and RBI (97), in addition to 31 doubles in 611 plate appearances. This production helped carry a Phillies team that lost Rhys Hoskins to a season-ending injury and was without Bryce Harper for the first month of the season.

In the field, Bohm split nearly equal time across the diamond, as he appeared in 90 games at third base and logged 80 games at first. Sliding across the diamond to man first base after Hoskins went down, Bohm made five errors in 486 chances, resulting in a .990 fielding percentage. At third, Bohm committed four errors in 179 chances, and good for a .978 fielding percentage.

The Phillies are hoping for a repeat of the Bohm we saw in 2023. Will he become a regular 20-25 home run hitter in his prime? While capable of making dazzling plays at third, he has also made some tough errors on routine plays. Will Bohm show more consistency at the hot corner this year? For these reasons, we rank Alec Bohm No. 5 in our Phillies infield power rankings.
