Pence came to the Phillies from the Houston Astros at the 2011 trade deadline. He quickly became a fan favorite with his goofy personality and swing for the fences batting style. He was counted on to sustain the middle of the batting order to start 2012, but quickly showed that he was not suited for or comfortable with that role. His defence in right field also came into question as he misplayed or ran odd routes to a number of routine balls. He will be most remembered for the catch phrase “Lets Go Eat” that was picked up by Phillies fans after an extra innings victory in 2011.
With 2/3 of their starting outfield already gone in trades, the Phillies will look to John Mayberry Jr. and AAA prospect Domonic Brown to fill the spots vacated by Pence and Shane Victorino.
