Reed Johnson gets 133rd

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

If you’re not familiar with Reed Johnson’s work, he’s the 36th most plunked batter of all time. He took sole possession of that spot on the all time plunk chart getting hit by Dillon Gee. Johnson has been hit 4 times by the Mets but that was his first at Citi Field. Johnson has been plunked by 28 of 30 major league teams.

Garin Cecchini got hit for the Red Sox last night, in his 2nd major league plate appearance.

Jeter gets 170th

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Derek Jeter moved ahead of Alex Rodriguez on the all time list for career HBPs last night, collecting his 170th career plunk on a pitch from Steve Geltz in the 8th inning of last night’s Rays-Yankees game. Jeter now has 15th place on the all time list all to himself – he’d need to get hit 2 more times to tie Carlos Delgado for 14th. The Rays have hit Jeter 18 times, but they only have one more game to add to that total before Jeter’s retirement this fall.

Mike Zunino took plunks number 16 and 17 of his season last night, extending his lead in the American League most plunkable player race. Only Dave Valle in 1993 (17) and Jose Guillen in 2007 (19) have been hit that many times in a season for the Mariners.
