Major League Record Book: Stolen Bases in a Season

So who are our fastest guys?

2006-2017
1 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2012 31
2 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2013 30
3 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 2013 23
4 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2014 22
5 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 2012 19
6 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2016 15
7 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 2014 13
8 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2015 12
9 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 2017 11
10 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 2012 10
Jon Jay Staunton ’04 2013 10

Looks like anyone with at least 10 since 2006 are on this list. Cory Spangenberg joined with his 11 in 2017. Jason Kipnis has 5 of the 11, Dan Murphy has 3, and Jon Jay has 2. I imagine Spangenberg will get his second in 2018.

Interesting- no overlap between lists. Juan Pierre owns this one, with 10 of the 21 spots, including the top three, and five out of the top six. Gene Richards has 3, Brett Gardner, Steve Finley and Reggie Sanders have 2, and Billy Sample and Darren Lewis each have 1.
