Player Outlook
Brandon Marsh took steps forward in several areas during his first full season in Philadelphia, going from a player who posted a .248/.303/.374 line (88 wRC+) over his first two seasons to one who hit .277/.372/.458 (125 wRC+). His 30.5 percent strikeout rate remains a notable weakness, but it also represents a big step forward from the 34.5 percent mark he carried into last season. Marsh has enough other tools between his glove, legs and above-average power (9.1 percent barrel rate) that all he needs to do is keep his strikeouts tolerable and he could be a productive player for a long time, though fantasy players might be hoping for a little more category juice. Despite that good barrel rate and his 82nd-percentile sprint speed, Marsh managed only a modest 12 homers and 10 steals. His opportunities against lefties dried up in the second half, limiting him to 472 plate appearances and hurting his counting stats. Marsh's career .591 OPS against lefties may continue to limit him to a platoon role going forward, especially due to the emergence of Johan Rojas.

  • Phillies' Brandon Marsh: Starts in outfield in spring debut

    Marsh (knee) will start in left field and bat eighth Wednesday in the Phillies' Grapefruit League game against the Tigers. After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in early February, Marsh was eased into baseball activities to begin spring training, and the 26-year-old has apparently responded well after gradually increasing the intensity of his workouts. Marsh had already played in an intrasquad game last week, but he'll now test out his knee in an uncontrolled setting for what will be his Grapefruit League debut. Because of the time he's already missed, Marsh will still need to stack up at-bats over the course of several games to guarantee his availability for Opening Day, but he appears on track to do that provided he doesn't experience a setback with his knee along the way.

  • Phillies' Brandon Marsh: On precipice of Grapefruit debut

    Phillies manager Rob Thomson said Saturday that Marsh (knee) could make his Grapefruit League debut by the middle or end of next week, Alex Coffey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Working his way back from arthroscopic left knee surgery, Marsh took five live at-bats on Saturday and is now up to 29 at-bats off live pitching this spring. He will serve as a designated hitter in an intrasquad game Sunday and could be ready for an official spring game shortly thereafter. The hope remains that Marsh will be ready to go for Opening Day, but he's working with a tight window.
