The Phillies' 1st round draft pick in 2018, Alec Bohm made his big league debut during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.  He'd bat .338 with four home runs and 23 RBIs, finishing as the runner-up that season in Rookie of the Year voting behind the Brewers' Devin Williams.  He suffered through a sophomore slump in 2021, which included a stint back in Lehigh Valley, but in 2022 Bohm proved he was up with the Phillies to stay.  After a rough beginning to his season, Bohm would go on to bat .280 with 13 home runs and 72 RBIs, starting 132 games at third base and five games at first base.  He batted .286 (6 for 21) in the 2022 World Series, with a home run and three RBIs.

In 2023, he split his time between third and first base due to injuries to Rhys Hoskins and Darick Hall.  Bohm batted .274 while attaining career highs in both home runs (20) and RBIs (97).  He's off to a torrid start in 2024, batting .330 with 42 RBIs and a league-leading 18 doubles.
