Stark: Phillies Sign Feliz

Monday, January 28, 2008

The Phillies and Pedro Feliz have agreed to a two year deal, according to ESPN.com writer Jayson Stark. With this signing, it is possible we see the Phillies trade Wes Helms, maybe to the Marlins. I think this signing is pretty good, but it definitely gives the Phillies one of the, if not, the best infield in baseball. Feliz had twenty homeruns with a .253 average last season, and should be slotted in the seventh spot behind Geoff Jenkins.

Pedro Feliz's career OPS is .721. For a frame of reference, Juan Pierre, a guy who has 12 career HRs in 4778 abs has an OPS of .722.

He is not a good person at baseball-type hitting.

His glove is his asset and even that's a bit suspect.

Give this a read. It's quite detailed.

Essentially, he's insurance if Howard goes down.
