No. 2: Brandon Marsh
Brandon Marsh is a candidate to be remembered as one of Dave Dombrowski's best in-season trades during his time as an executive for the Philadelphia Phillies. Exchanged for top catching prospect Logan O' Hoppe at the 2022 MLB Trade Deadline, Marsh has become a fan favorite for his solid play on the field and his trademark beard.
As Marsh enters his second full season in a Phillies uniform, the 25-year-old will likely enter 2024 as the team's everyday left fielder. With the emergence of Rojas as a Gold Glove-caliber center fielder, Marsh shifted to left field. With injuries a near constant for him, it's possible the less demanding assignment could benefit Marsh and keep him healthy this season.
Brandon Marsh playing left field in 2024 is the best-case scenario. But with the aforementioned questions regarding Rojas' and Pache's ability to hit enough to play every day, Marsh could very well find himself starting in center at some point this season.
Marsh's value at two positions makes him one of the most important position players on the roster heading into spring training. That versatility is sure to be tested, as we can expect Marsh to take reps in left and center as the season goes on. It's not a stretch to believe Marsh can repeat or improve on his .982 fielding percentage this year. That's why Brandon Marsh is No. 2 in the Phillies outfield power rankings.
