Of the 183 players who made at least 450 plate appearances, the 24-year-old infielder was 177th in slugging (.338), 179th in on-base percentage (.267), 180th in on-base plus slugging (.605), tied for 165th in walk percentage (5.0), and 21st in strikeout percentage (26.0). And what about weighted runs created plus and weighted on-base average, modern metrics preferred by the data-driven Phillies? Kingery ranked 180th in both.
