2016 Phillies Opening Day Roster By the Numbers

I like stats and trivia, which is probably why I like baseball. There is no day that feeds that desire and need like Opening Day. We have new rosters and a data point that we can compare against every other Opening Day. So without me continuing to ramble about this, it is time for useless facts and trivia.

All of these stats only include the 25 men on the Phillies opening day roster, not included are the players on the Disabled List (Aaron Altherr, Cody Asche, Mario Hollands, Michael Mariot, and Matt Harrison)
