We’ve finished the league record book, so we’ll turn our attention to the minor league record book. Keep in mind that these stats are for players drafted since 2006 (which does not include Brett Gardner, by the way).
So we’ll start with runs scored in a season:
|1||John Raynor||New Market ’04||2007||110|
|2||Sherman Johnson||Covington ’09-10||2014||107|
|3||John Raynor||New Market ’04||2008||104|
|4||Jason Kipnis||Covington ’06-07||2010||96|
|Tyler Bortnick||Front Royal ’06||2011||96|
|6||Tyson Auer||Luray ’05-06||2010||95|
|Collin Cowgill||Covington ’05||2011||95|
|8||Mac Williamson||Harrisonburg ’11||2013||94|
|9||Mike Mitchell||Staunton ’06||2008||93|
|Joey Butler||New Market ’06||2012||93|
John Raynor had two incredible seasons, but back in 2007 and 2008. Sherman Johnson got awfully close to setting the record this year, but fell 3 runs short.
Raynor, Jason Kipnis, Collin Cowgill, and Joey Butler have all played in the majors. Bortnick is in Triple-A. Auer and Mitchell are out of pro ball, and Williamson will hopefully bounce back from injury in 2015.
Coming tomorrow: the 8th best starting pitcher!
