Pham is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals. Pham will get a day off, with Tyler O'Neill starting in center field in his place. O'Neill has three homers in three games, but if he's to regularly steal playing time from a Cardinals outfielder, that outfielder is unlikely to be Pham. Pham's wRC+ currently sits at 157, while corner outfielders Marcell Ozuna and Dexter Fowler have posted figures of 68 and 64, respectively.
Pham went 3-for-3 with a double, three runs, two walks and an RBI to help spearhead the Cardinals' 12-4 romp over the Phillies on Friday. Pham was all over the place hitting atop the order in this contest, reaching base five times and scoring three runs on an all-around standout day for the St. Louis offense. The 30-year-old is in the midst of an All-Star caliber campaign as he's currently sporting a ridiculous .318/.430/.553 slash line with eight home runs and seven steals - a strong follow-up to last season's breakout that saw him log a .931 OPS.
Pham went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Twins. It was his eighth homer of the year, and his third in the last six games. Pham has been running very hot or cold lately -- he went 0-for-12 with seven strikeouts in the three games without a homer over the last week -- but his overall .312/.419/.552 slash line on the season remains impressive.
Pham went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and also was caught stealing in his only attempt during a win over the Padres on Friday. Pham continues to rake out of the top of the order, with Friday's multi-hit effort -- his second consecutive -- pushing his season line to .343/.450/.593. The 30-year-old outfielder has a modest seven hits thus far in May but has made them count, as four of them have left the park, leading to seven RBI.
Pham went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs to help the Cardinals to a 2-1 win over the Padres on Thursday. After missing the team's last three games with a groin injury, Pham was back in the lineup for this one and looked like his old self with the multi-hit performance that also saw him launch his sixth homer of the season and account for both of the Cardinals' runs. He looks fully uninhibited coming off the injury and he's now sporting a fantastic .330/.444/.563 through 103 at-bats.
