This is a countdown of the Philadelphia Phillies worst individual pitching performaces since the year 2000.
15. Geoff Geary in 2004
In 2004, Geary split time between the majors and minors. He struggled during his time in the big leagues, having the worst year of his Phillies career.
In 47.2 innings, Geary had an ERA of 5.44 and WHIP of 1.52. Opponents batted .292 off the right hander and slugged .528 off him.
2004 was the first year for Citizen’s Bank Park and Geary did not fare well at the new ballpark. He had a 6.66 ERA at home. Geary also could have benefited from rest because he had a 10.29 ERA on days he pitched back to back.
Last offseason, the Houston Astros acquired Geary in the trade that brought Brad Lidge to Philadelphia. Geary spent time on the disabled list last season, but in 64 innings, he had a 2.53 ERA, the lowest of his career.
