Phillies 2018 season preview: Outfielder Nick Williams

The only Phillies rookie anyone wanted to talk about last year was Rhys Hoskins. In fairness, you can’t really blame them considering the absurd amount of home runs he hit to start off his major-league career. However, Hoskins overshadowed some other good rookie seasons from other players, one of which came from Nick Williams.

Williams came into the 2017 season off of a down year in Triple-A. He started off the year decently but finished off the season hitting .221 with a .618 OPS and just two walks in his last 232 plate appearances.
