No 4: Bryson Stott
Bryson Stott is another young Phillies player who broke out in 2023. The Phillies saw enough promise out of Stott in his 2022 rookie season that he entered the year as the team's primary second baseman. It's safe to say that was the right move, as Stott has a unique skill-set as a second baseman the team hasn't seen since the days of Chase Utley.
The 26-year-old had a breakout season offensively in 2023. In 151 games, Stott hit .280 with 15 home runs and 62 RBI, along with 31 steals in 34 chances. In a lineup that features a number of feared sluggers, Stott's excellent approach at the plate and his power-speed combination make him a player who has yet to hit his ceiling as an offensive performer.
Stott also made his mark in the field. Paired with a new double-play partner when the Phillies signed Trea Turner, Stott played well-above-average defense in his first full season as a second baseman, earning Gold Glove consideration. In 149 games last year, Stott made only five errors in 602 chances, resulting in a solid .992 fielding percentage.
Stott enters 2024 with even higher expectations after his stellar 2023 season. Recently snubbed my MLB Network's top 10 second base rankings, hopefully Stott uses his omission from the list as motivation this season. He enters this year as the team's primary second baseman, and it will be interesting to see if he spends more time at the top of the lineup. That's why Bryson Stott is No. 4 in our Phillies infield power rankings.
