They missed his consistency atop the lineup. Since the start of 2016, Hernandez has hit .289 with a .361 on-base percentage.

From opening day until Hernandez went on the disabled list, the Phillies hit .242 with a .708 OPS as a team. With him out, they hit .239 with a .682 OPS.

Unfortunately for the Phils, Hernandez's return coincides with Aaron Altherr's trip to the DL. Altherr strained his right hamstring on a double Friday night in Milwaukee.

Tommy Joseph is out of Monday's lineup.
