16 batters got hit by pitches yesterday, including Sean Halton of the Brewers who got hit by Bronson Arroyo. Arroyo has now thrown 99 pitches that officially hit batters in his career. He’s the 90th pitcher to reach 99 career plunks and if he hits one more batter he’ll be the 87th member of the pitchers wing of the 100 plunk club.
On Saturday, Placido Polanco got inducted to the 100 plunk club by Daisuke Matsuzaka, and Matsuzaka also delivered Polanco’s 101st HBP just to make sure he stayed in the club. Polanco is now 78th on the all time HBP list, and he’s the 80th player in major league history to get hit by 100 pitches.
