Carlos Pena already held the Rays franchise record for career plunks before the 2012 season started, but thanks to his 5 HBPs this year, the Rays now have a better franchise plunk record than the Mets, and are now up to 28th place among active franchises. Rickie Weeks’ efforts this season have given him sole possession of the Brewers career HBP record, and pushed the Brewers into a tie with Larry Walker and the Rockies for the 16th best franchise plunk record among the 30 modern teams.
Below are the franchise HBP record holders for all 30 teams:
|145||White Sox||Minnie Minoso|
|122||Blue Jays||Carlos Delgado|
|84||Red Sox||Kevin Youkilis|
