Even after not making the Opening Day roster, Tommy Pham has shown the St. Louis Cardinals that he has more than it takes to be a great player. On a per/rate basis, Pham has gotten to the position of the second most valuable player in the National League. Pham made his way into the 20/20 on September 14th and became the first Cardinals player to accomplish this since Reggie Sanders did the same back in 2004. By the end of this season, Pham had the genuine possibility to add on to an already impressive resume. Bernie Miklasz of 101Sports.com ESPN said:
If Pham finishes with a .300 batting average, a .400 onbase percentage, and .500 slugging percentage, he’ll make history. He’d become the first qualifying player in Cardinals’ franchise history to hit 20 homers, steal 20 bases and put up a slash line of at least .300 / .400 / .500.
As of now Pham is batting .310 / .410 / .526.
The future holds a lot for Tommy Pham and Cardinals fans are stoked to see where it goes.
