Major League Record Book: Career Home Runs

The big list. Teams are always, seemingly, searching for power. So who has hit the most career major league home runs since the 2006 draft?

1 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 87
2 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 76
3 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 39
4 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 31
5 Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 20
6 Clint Robinson Harrisonburg ’05-6 15
7 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 12
8 Joey Butler New Market ’06 8
Tyler White Haymarket ’10 8
10 Eric Campbell Luray ’06 7
Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 7

Brett Gardner Watch: 63 home runs- good for 3rd on the list

Items of Note:

  • Murphy’s lead over Kipnis is pretty small, relatively speaking (11 home runs)
  • Will Murphy AND Kipnis hit #100 in 2017?
  • Schimpf, like on the triples list, went from zero to 5th place in 220 at-bats!
  • Literally, every single member of this list is still active, although Campbell will be playing in Japan this year.
