Point of the day is that Ben Francisco has some power. For the Phillies that had 150 plate appearances with the team in 2010, here’s the percentage of hits that each of them had that went for extra-bases and the percentage that were singles:

So Werth was the only guy on the Phils who saw more of his hits go for extra-bases in 2010 and fewer of them go for singles. That’s a small number of plate appearances for Francisco, of course, but he was actually down from his career numbers in 2010. Coming into 2010, Francisco had 1,024 plate appearances and 240 hits. Of those hits, 101 (42.1%) had gone for extra-bases and 139 (57.9%) were singles. So even with those numbers down a little, he still saw more of his hits go for extra bases than anyone on the team except for Werth and Werth led the NL in doubles.

Here are the career rates at which Howard, Werth, Ibanez, Utley and Francisco have had their hits go for extra-bases or singles:

% of H XBH % of H 1B
Howard 47.5 52.5
Francisco 41.7 58.3
Utley 40.4 59.6
Werth 39.9 60.1
Ibanez 37.3 62.7

Francisco has a career slugging percentage that’s the worst of the group (.446). Ibanez is second-lowest, and he’s at .476. That has a lot to do with batting average, though, and the frequency of hits rather than how many bases they go for when they occur. Francisco’s career batting average is just .263, which is the worst of the group (Werth is second at .272).
