So, sure, driving in a bunch of runs depends quite a bit on opportunity, but it also means that a hitter is in the lineup consistently, too.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the most RBIs in a major league career since the 2006 draft!
|1||Dan Murphy||Luray ’05||506|
|2||Jason Kipnis||Covington ’06-7||354|
|3||Jon Jay||Staunton ’04||253|
|4||Yonder Alonso||Luray ’06||239|
|5||Clint Robinson||Harrisonburg ’05-6||62|
|6||Collin Cowgill||Covington ’05||57|
|7||Tommy La Stella||Haymarket ’09||53|
|8||Ryan Schimpf||Luray ’08||51|
|9||Eric Campbell||Luray ’06||44|
|10||Cory Spangenberg||Winchester ’10||38|
Brett Gardner Watch: 342 RBIs, good for 3rd on this list.
Once again, we have Dan Murphy at the top, with Kipnis, Jay, and Alonso filling the next three slots. Schimpf jumped to 8th on this list with less than half a year in the majors- will he get a full season in 2017?
