Snell faced the Phillies twice this season and the Padres lost both games. He allowed seven runs, nine hits and five walks over 9.1 combined innings in those starts. J.T. Realmuto, who went deep off of Snell in June, has had the most success against him among Phils regulars. He’s 4-for-10 with a .500 on-base percentage. Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins have only one hit each against Snell, but it was a home run.
