Minor League Record Book: Career Triples

These lists look quite a bit different from the others… for example, no Clint Robinson!

2006-2018
1 Tony Thomas Harrisonburg ’05 48
2 Tyler Kuhn Luray ’06-07 42
3 Sherman Johnson Covington ’09-’10 37
4 Chad Oberacker Fauquier ’09 34
5 Ben Guez Covington ’06 33
6 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 32
7 Tyler Bortnick Front Royal ’06 30
8 Adam Calderone Woodstock ’04 28
9 Scott Cousins Harrisonburg ’05 26
Ruben Sosa Harrisonburg ’10 26
Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 26
12 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 25
13 Tyson Auer Luray ’05-06 23

Changes:

  • Sherman Johnson not only made his major league debut in 2018, but he moved up from #5 to #3
  • Cory Spangenberg didn’t spend much time in the minors, but when he was there, he tripled twice, moving past Tyler Bortnick to #6 (alone)
  • In 2017, Ryan Schimpf and Collin Cowgill were tied with 24 triples, in 11th place. Schimpf hit 2, and Cowgill hit one, so Schimpf is now tied for 9th, and Cowgill alone at #12.

Ben Guez Covington ’06 33
20 Andy Barkett Winchester ’92 32
Clay Timpner Staunton ’02 32
Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 32

Changes: Wow- Sherman Johnson was tied at #19 after 2017. With “just” 5 triples, he jumped all the way to a tie for #7! The other change is that Cory Spangenberg joined Timpner and Barkett in a tie for 20th. (Johnson and Spangenberg are the only active players on this list as well.)
