The 2019 Philadelphia Phillies let it be known they are in the hunt for a championship when they signed Bryce Harper to a 13-year contract, worth $330 million. The Phillies made the big splash in the offseason by acquiring Harper and hope with other offseason signings, they’ve put a team together to take on the tough NL East. Another boost to the Phillies outfield was the signing of Andrew McCutchen. Behind the plate, the Phillies made a trade with the Marlins for catcher J.T. Realmuto. If that wasn’t enough, they also traded with the Mariners to bring over shortstop Jean Segura.
With the offense getting a major upgrade, the Phillies starting lineup is one of the best in the National League. In addition to the new players from the offseason, the Phillies have Rhys Hoskins, Obdubel Herrera, Maikel Franco and Cesar Hernandez. Hoskins is one of the league’s future stars and will be in the cleanup spot next to Harper and McCutchen. Manager Gabe Kapler will have power up and down this lineup.
The pitching staff got a boost to their bullpen in the offseason when the Phillies signed closer David Robertson. Robertson joins a solid bullpen with guys like Hector Neris and Seranthony Dominguez. The Phillies rotation is led by Cy Young candidate Aaron Nola. Behind Nola is Jake Arrieta, Zach Eflin, Nick Pivetta and Vince Velasquez.
