Tommy Pham has shown a few flashes of brilliance across the postseason. In Game 1 of the NLDS against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Pham enjoyed a four-hit night and scored three times, including a late-game home run to put the Diamondbacks up 11-0. He homered again in Game 6 against the Phillies, but other than that, his bat seemed to die down in the NLCS. He's also tied for third in strikeouts among Arizona hitters.
Pham came to Arizona from the New York Mets at the trade deadline this year, and was able to put up relatively similar numbers with 50 games played with the Dbacks versus 79 with the Mets. He's a veteran in a very young lineup, and he's no stranger to the postseason, with this year marking his fourth trip. With his position at the very center of the Dbacks order, he needs to be a tone-setter for the guys further down and follow up after Christian Walker, who will hopefully improve at clean-up.
