PRC: Pedro Feliz

Player: Pedro Feliz
Number: 7
Position: 3B
Bats/Throws: R/R

Consistency: I don’t want to be too hard on Feliz. He was better this year than last. He had an amazing start to the season and then all of a sudden just became an automatic out. He was a guy who could hit 25 homers in San Francisco but only hit 26 in his two years combined in Philly. His monthly average decline as the season progressed. By the end of July, he was still batting .290 but then his terrible last two months brought his average down to .266, his final average.

Regular Season Stats: 158 G, 580 AB, 62 R, 154 H, 30 2B, 2 3B, 12 HR, 82 RBI, 0 SB, 35 BB, 68 K, .266 AVG, .308 OBP, .386 SLG

Post Season Stats: 15 G, 54 AB, 5 R, 9 H, 2 2B, 1 3B, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 0 SB, 2 BB, 11 K, .167 AVG, .196 OBP, .352 SLG

Fielding: This is one aspect of his game the Phillies will miss. Even though Placido Polanco is a good fielder, Feliz’s defense and arm are just irreplaceable.

Health: He was never hurt.

Intangibles: His glove is exceptional but his hitting skills lacked. Though in a line up where the Phillies are stacked 1-6 and have Carlos Ruiz batting 8th, his lack of production didn’t hurt that much. But he did kill this team in the playoffs. Ryan Howard, Raul Ibanez, and Jayson Werth would get on and he couldn’t bring them in. He killed rallies and he was an automatic out.

Overall Grade: C-. He was unreliable at the plate. His two-year tenure is up and I wish him luck with the Astros, who signed him yesterday.
