Phillips, even with his injury late in the year, improved his WAR from 3 to 4 last year. Either has been trending downward from 3.4 to 2.7 to 2.2 for last year, and that has been a result of both his offense and his defense.
Also, there were 7 above average 2B in the majors last year. There were 7 impact bats who can play outfield in the NL West last year.
