Phillies team leaders - June 5

Another week is in the books and here we are again with the Phillies leaders.

Down:

Freddy Galvis lit up the leader board through most of the first two month of the season, but he only shares the lead in one category now. His average has plummeted to .269 and it is starting to appear that his early success was more of a fluke than a trend.

Ryan Howard is still on the way down. In his last 9 games dating back to May 25, Howard is hitting .086 (3-for-35), has zero home runs, 2 doubles, and just 1 RBI. Too bad Amaro couldn't find a sucker to take him when his stock was high.

Jake Diekman didn't have a particularly bad week, but his 6.75 ERA in 25 games did not help things.

Up:

Maikel Franco has 5 hits in his last 13 at-bats (.385) and two home runs who just happened to be key late game-tying bombs. His average climbed to .227 from his season low average of .194.

Jonathan Papelbon hasn't been great lately...he's been great all year. He doesn't have a save since May 20 and has only pitched four times since that date, but he is having a phenomenal season with a 1.23 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 22 games.

And now...for probably the final time...your weekly Chae Utley update.

Chase is finally above the Mendoza line and now just having your run-of-the-mill bad start to a season. Here's where he ranks among all qualified players in baseball:

.206 average (6th worst), .278 OBP (21st worst), .329 SLG (18th worst), .608 OPS (14th worst)

And now, here are your Phillies leaders.
