2. Scott Kingery
The writing has been on the wall for Scott Kingery for quite some time now. The former top prospect hasn’t come close to living up to expectations, spending the majority of the last two seasons in the minor leagues.
After tallying 19 home runs and 55 RBIs while slashing .258/.315/.474 over 126 games in 2019, Kingery has only recorded three HRs, six RBIs, and a .144/.204/.250 slash line across 52 contests since then.
Although some Phillies fans have faith that he can turn it around, the 29-year-old’s best days are likely behind him due to his injury history.
Kingery’s contract contains a team option ahead of the 2024 campaign, but it comes at the cost of $13 million, per Spotrac. There’s also a $1 million buyout clause if the Phillies do pick up his option, however, it makes more sense to let the struggling infielder/outfielder walk altogether.
