Aiming to make their first playoff appearance since 2011, the Philadelphia Phillies entered this season with a club-record payroll and a powerful lineup with the addition of Nick Castellanos and Kyle Schwarber in free agency. But defensive woes and an inconsistent bullpen have placed the Phillies third in the NL East behind the New York Mets and Atlanta Braves with bench coach Rob Thomson calling the shots as interim manager after parting ways with Joe Girardi on June 3. Reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper has continued to show up for his team despite playing with a torn UCL (right elbow) that has limited him to the designated hitter position. Harper currently ranks second in the NL in OPS.
Three years after taking the 2019 World Series title, the Washington Nationals–in the midst of a rebuild–currently sit last in the NL East. The team has struggled all season long on the mound with the worst ERA in Major League Baseball. On offense, All-Star OF Juan Soto, 1B Josh Bell, DH Nelson Cruz, and LF Lane Thomas have been the players to watch in Washington. Soto leads the team in home runs, while the others rank among the top four respectively, in hits.
