That player is Tommy Pham who the Diamondbacks who was traded to the team at the midway portion of the season after his stint with the New York Mets.

During his time with the Mets, he was looked at as the fourth outfielder on a team that already featured Mark Canha, Brandon Nimmo, and Starling Marte.

Before he was dealt to the Diamondbacks, Pham was hitting .268, had 10 home runs, and 36 RBIs, and was looked upon as a player who could be expendable for the Mets.

After he got dealt to the Diamondbacks, his season dipped a little as he hit .241, had 6 home runs and 32 RBIs. However, the start of the postseason has been a different story.

So far in the postseason, he is 7-for-22 with one home run and two steals. He’s been one of the most consistent players for the Diamondbacks this postseason and is fun to watch for the fans.

Combined for the season, Pham has posted a 111 OPS+ with 27 doubles, 16 home runs, 68 RBI, 55 runs scored, and 22 steals in a 1.5-WAR season.

He has been hitting as the number three which is usually reserved for power hitters in baseball. Throughout his career, he has played for seven teams over the course of his 10-year career, and he has averaged 21 home runs, 19 steals, and 2.9 WAR per 162 games.

Phillies Fans Have Already Found Their Motivation.

Pham has had a very underrated career that has featured a lot of ups and downs, but now he sees himself in a position to be a difference-maker for a team that is trying to win its first championship since 2001.
