A lack of Phillies offense is what is being talked about the most as the Spring Training season is winding down to a precious few more games for players to get into a groove of playing the game of baseball.
Two players that haven’t caught fire this Spring are Grady Sizemore and Ben Revere. Both players are in the lowest 20 batting averages in baseball so far in Spring Training, now that it is almost finished. Sizemore has a .161 BA with 31 AB so far, and Revere is at .170.
Sizemore had a banner Spring with the Red Sox last year, batting a respectable .310 in 42 AB’s last year.
It’s been a disappointing Spring for Ben Revere also. Revere finished up Spring Training in 2014 with a .294 BA in 53 AB. That average is nearly in half of what it was, with before the start of Sunday’s game is .170 in 2015.
There is a lot of why the Phils haven’t been getting the job done on offense this Spring.
Recently picked up by the Mets, former Phils player, John Mayberry is batting .415 in Spring Training and has 3 HR and 9 RBI so far in ’15, numbers that were never seen when he was with the Phils.
It’s a strange game to figure out, but the Phillies have to start doing something fast, the season starts against the Boston Red Sox on April 6th, at 3:05 pm.
