Pham went 3-for-4 with a triple, two runs scored, one RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's win over Toronto. Acquired from the Cardinals at the trade deadline, Pham was electric with the Rays down the stretch. The 30-year-old finished with a .343 average and 1.070 OPS in 174 plate appearances with Tampa Bay. Overall, he scored 102 runs and drilled 21 homers during the 2018 season, and he'll enter next season having reached base safely in 32 consecutive games.
Pham is not expected to require offseason surgery to address his groin and finger injuries, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Pham has been dealing with the injuries since late August and will apparently be able to go without surgery and just allow the injuries to heal on their own. The 30-year-old has continued to excel despite the injuries with a .352/.460/.681 slash line and 15 extra-base hits in September.
Pham extended his on-base streak to 31 games by going 1-for-4 with a run and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays. The outfielder is rolling, last failing to reach base Aug. 20. Before Saturday's contest, Pham was sporting a .333/.442/.615 line with seven homers, three stolen bases and 21 RBI since his July 31 trade to Tampa Bay. He added his 14th swipe in this contest and hopes to take a 32-game run into next season after Sunday's season finale.
Pham went 1-for-2 with two walks, a stolen base and two runs in a win over the Blue Jays on Sunday. He's now reached safely in a career-high 25 straight games. Pham's on-base streak also qualifies as the best in the American League at present. The slugging outfielder has excelled since arriving in Tampa from St. Louis at the trade deadline, slashing .347/.444/.620 over 144 plate appearances while compiling a .446 wOBA and .273 ISO during that stretch.
Pham went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday. He cleared the fences in the third inning off Thomas Pannone in an otherwise tepid day for Tampa Bay's offense. In his six-game hitting streak, Pham is 12-for-25 with three homers, six runs scored and seven RBI, bringing him to a .272/.358/.455 slash line with 20 homers, 60 RBI, 92 runs and 12 stolen bases in 536 plate appearances.
