Player Outlook
It wasn't too long ago that Cristian Pache was one of the game's more exciting prospects, the sort of player who could headline a package for Matt Olson. Yet he found himself incapable of securing an Opening Day roster spot with the lowly Athletics last March, and with his minor-league options exhausted, he was traded to the Phillies for a minor-league reliever. A bench role on a good team suits Pache's current skill set just fine, and the result was the 24-year-old's best big-league campaign to date - though that's an admittedly low bar to clear. Knee and elbow injuries limited him to just 48 games, and his role as a defensive replacement limited his playing time still further to just 95 trips to the plate, but his .238/.319/.417 slash line was good for a nearly-average 99 wRC+, a fine mark for a role player. Pache earned the occasional start against left-handers, including a pair in the postseason, though the emergence of fellow glove-first right-handed outfielder Johan Rojas could limit those opportunities in 2024. While Pache may now be a legitimate big-league bench player, it would take both a move and some substantial growth at the plate to give him much fantasy appeal.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Starting again versus lefty

    Pache is starting in left field and batting eighth Monday in Game 2 of the NLDS versus Atlanta, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. It was Brandon Marsh in left field for Game 1 against right-hander Spencer Strider. Southpaw Max Fried will toe the rubber for Game 2, so Pache gets the call in left. It's the third time in four games this postseason that the Phillies have faced a lefty and Pache has started in left field in all of them, reaching base twice and driving in one run in six plate appearances.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Playing left field in Game 1

    Pache is starting in left field and batting eighth Tuesday in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series versus the Marlins. Brandon Marsh will take a seat as the Phillies face left-hander Jesus Luzardo in Tuesday's opener at Citizens Bank Park. Pache is an excellent defender in the outfield and slashed .314/.375/.549 in 57 plate appearances versus southpaws during the regular season.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Activated from IL

    Pache (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. Pache has been out since mid-July following surgery to remove a screw from his right elbow. Johan Rojas looks to have leap-frogged him on the Phillies' center field depth chart, but Pache could still see some starts against lefties.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Resumes rehab assignment

    Pache (elbow/hip) is set to resume his rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. Pache was held out of minor-league action for a little over a week because of hip tightness, but that issue is now in the rearview and he could return to the Phillies' active roster as early as Friday. The 24-year-old outfielder initially landed on the injured list in mid-July following a stabilization procedure on his right elbow.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Rehab paused by hip issue

    Manager Rob Thomson said Sunday that Pache (elbow) hasn't seen game action during his rehab assignment since Friday due to hip tightness, Corey Seidman of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Friday marked the ninth game of Pache's rehab assignment as he appeared close to returning from the injured list, but the hip issue has put things on pause. Depending on the severity of the injury, the 24-year-old could still rejoin the Phillies before the end of August.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Closing in on rehab assignment

    Pache (elbow) is expected to begin a minor-league rehab assignment during the upcoming week, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. Pache has been taking part in baseball activities for nearly two weeks and looks like he'll soon be ready to test himself in a game setting after he was initially placed on the 10-day injured list July 14. When healthy this season, Pache has largely functioned as a depth outfielder for Philadelphia, but he could have an avenue to more regular playing time if he beats Brandon Marsh (knee) back from the IL. Marsh was deactivated Sunday and is expected to miss around 2-to-3 weeks.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Light throwing, hitting

    Pache (elbow) did some light throwing and hit off a tee Tuesday, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Pache will soon head to the Phillies' spring training complex in Florida to ramp up the intensity of his workouts. He required a cleanup procedure on his right elbow earlier this month but looks to be tracking toward a return sometime in August.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Expected to return this season

    Pache (elbow) will be sidelined for a few weeks but is expected to return this season, MLB.com reports.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Elbow injury related to old surgery

    The right elbow irritation which landed Pache on the 10-day injured list is related to an old surgery during which he had a screw inserted into his arm, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. The surgery actually happened back before Pache began his pro career back in 2016. It's currently viewed as a minor injury, although a timetable for his return won't be known until after he visits the doctor.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Lands on IL with elbow injury

    Pache was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with right elbow irritation. It had been reported that Pache was heading to the IL and now we know what injury he's dealing with. The issue is considered minor, so he should be ready to return around the time he's first eligible July 21. Johan Rojas will fill Pache's spot on the Phillies' roster and figures to take over the short-side platoon role in center field alongside Brandon Marsh.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Headed to injured list

    Pache is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. It's unclear what injury Pache is dealing with, but it's apparently considered minor so the outfielder figures to be back in close to the minimum amount of time. Johan Rojas is coming up to take Pache's spot on the Phillies' roster.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Returns from meniscus tear

    Philadelphia activated Pache (knee) from the 10-day injured list Friday. Recovered from a late-April meniscus tear in his right knee, Pache will return to the Phillies' outfield mix ahead of Friday night's series opener against the Athletics. He went 3-for-25 (.120) in seven minor-league rehab games and doesn't offer much fantasy appeal, but Philly can use his help defensively.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Back to baseball activity

    Pache (knee) could begin a rehab assignment in the next couple weeks, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Pache has been sidelined since April 29 and had surgery to repair his right meniscus. He's since progressed in his recovery, as he's been hitting and also ramping up defensive drills. If all goes well, Pache seemingly could return in the middle of June.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Undergoes knee surgery

    Pache had surgery to repair his right meniscus Monday, Corey Seidman of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Per Seidman, the team expects Pache to need 4-to-6 weeks to recover from the procedure. Jake Cave and Dalton Guthrie, who was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, could see an uptick in opportunities while Pache returns to full strength.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Diagnosed with torn meniscus

    Pache has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his right knee, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. Pache suffered the injury Friday night in Houston while taking a lead off second base in the top of the fifth inning. He's already been placed on the 10-day IL and figures to be sidelined for at least the next several weeks following surgery to repair the meniscus tear. Dalton Guthrie was recalled by the Phillies on Saturday as a roster replacement and could be in for a decent helping of playing time in the outfield. Or perhaps Brandon Marsh will be used more against lefties moving forward.

  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Placed on injured list

Dalton Guthrie has been recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Homers in Sunday's win

    Pache went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Sunday's 10-3 win over the Mariners. Pache extended the Athletics' lead to 3-0 with his fourth-inning blast. He's seen inconsistent playing time since returning to the big leagues Aug. 28, going 6-for-33 with two extra-base hits, five RBI and three runs scored across 20 contests in that span. He now has a .162/.216/.239 slash line with three homers, 18 RBI, 18 runs scored and a stolen base in 252 plate appearances in the majors this year.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Laces three-bagger in loss

    Pache entered Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Nationals as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning and remained in the game in center field, lacing an RBI triple, drawing two walks and scoring one run in his three plate appearances. The 23-year-old was making his third appearance overall since being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, and his first hit since his return was his second major-league three-bagger. Pache's busy night offensively was certainly encouraging considering his past struggles against big-league pitching, and he should get a solid opportunity to continue honing his craft over the final month of the season.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Sent down Thursday

    Pache was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday. Pache's playing time declined over the last several weeks, and he went just 2-for-18 with a double, a run, an RBI and six strikeouts over his last seven games. Skye Bolt (hamstring) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list and is starting in center field Thursday against the Mariners.
