Finally a list without Clint Robinson at the top! Let’s just say that with all of Clint’s talents, running fast is not one of them.
Anyway, here is the list for most career minor league triples since the 2006 draft!
|1||Tony Thomas||Harrisonburg ’05||48|
|2||Tyler Kuhn||Luray ’06-07||42|
|3||Chad Oberacker||Fauquier ’09||34|
|4||Ben Guez||Covington ’06||33|
|5||Tyler Bortnick||Front Royal ’06||30|
|6||Cory Spangenberg||Winchester ’10||29|
|Sherman Johnson||Covington ’09-’10||29|
|8||Adam Calderone||Woodstock ’04||28|
|9||Scott Cousins||Harrisonburg ’05||26|
|10||Tyson Auer||Luray ’05-06||23|
|Ryan Schimpf||Luray ’08||23|
|Collin Cowgill||Covington ’05||23|
Not a ton of hope for rapid movement in this one. Tyler Bortnick is still active, even though he’s a minor league free agent at the moment. Sherman Johnson is still active in the Angels’ system, and Cory Spangenberg, Ryan Schimpf, and Collin Cowgill are all mostly major leaguers now. (Although all will probably see more minor league at-bats before their respective careers are finished.)
All the others- Thomas , Kuhn, Oberacker, Guez, Calderone, Cousins, and Auer are no longer in affiliated ball.
