Scott Kingery Impacts Games In Many Ways

Phillies Final Report

Best Player: 2B Scott Kingery

The 23-year-old Kingery dazzled the Phillies with his play in big league camp and continued it through a season split between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

“No one in our system impacts the game in as many ways as he can,” director of player development Joe Jordan said. “He can go 0-for-4 and help you win.”

Kingery did not take too many oh-fers. In 132 games between the two levels, he hit .304/.359/.530 with 26 home runs, 29 doubles and 29 stolen bases in 34 attempts. The former Pacific-12 Conference MVP and batting champ at Arizona was a 2015 second-round pick.
