It’s safe to say that so far, the 2021 season has not gone the way Phillies third basemen Alec Bohm had hoped. The 24-year-old’s sophomore season has been a far cry from the electric rookie year that had many fans thinking he was a key piece of the franchise’s future.

Bohm burst onto the scene in 2020 by hitting .338/.400/.481 with 4 home runs and 23 RBI in 44 games. He ended up leading all qualifying National League rookies in key stats: batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, and hits.
