Jeter gets 169th plunk – ties Arod

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Giancarlo Stanton was not actually hit by a pitch last night, even though you probably already saw video of a pitch hitting him in the face. While Stanton did take a pitch in the face, the umpire said he was swinging – so no HBP for him or Reed Johnson who finished the at-bat and also got hit while swinging for a non-HBP.

Derek Jeter – known for getting hit by pitches that didn’t actually hit him – received plunk number 169 of his career, tying him with Bradley Boxberger. Jeter is now tied for 15th place on the all time list, tied with Alex Rodriguez.

AJ Burnett threw plunk number 130 of his career last night, hitting Starling Marte. He’s tied for 32nd place all time, with Jesse Tannehill and George Mulin. Marte is up to 17 plunks this season, 2 behind league leader Jon Jay who also got hit yesterday.

Jon Jay collected his 19th HBP of the season, delivered by Johnny Cueto. Jay currently leads all 2014 batters in plunks.

Dan Murphy broke a 1092 PA plunkless streak, getting hit by Matt Thornton.

Jay takes most plunkable player lead with 18th

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

Jon Jay is now the first Cardinal to get hit 18 times in a season since the great Fernando Vina in 2002. Jay was hit by Reds pitcher Sam Lecure in the 8th inning last night, giving him a one plunk lead over teammate Matt Holliday in the 2014 plunk race. Holliday and Jay are the first pair of Cardinals to have 17 plunks in the same season since 1900 when Dann McGann and John McGraw got hit 24 and 23 times.

Starling Marte kept himself in the conversation for the 2014 most plunkable player award, collecting his 16th of the year last night. Jerome Williams hit Marte in the 1st inning of yesterday’s Pirates-Phillies game.
