Consistency: Condrey was actually one of their best righties all year. He started out real well until June when he got whacked around by AL hitting. He was then hurt in July, came back, and then missed all of August but bounced back to pitch steady towards the end of the season. In his last 12 games, he pitched eight innings of work, allowing six hits and two runs, none earned.
Despite the strong finish, he was left off the playoff roster. He is up for arbitration this off season.
Post Season Stats: none
Health: He was on the DL a couple times with a strained oblique.
Intangibles: “Big Texas” is a favorite in the club house going by the mini-series “The Pen.” Along with being a positive presence as a team player, he was a positive presence in the righty-specialist role. His fast ball hit low-90’s and so did his sinker, allowing him to get hitters to ground out.
Overall Grade: B. He was statistically one of the Phillies’ best relievers. Him being left off the post season roster was a bit of a surprise. Overall he did nothing wrong but wasn’t exceptional. A “B” grade is what you get for doing your job.
