We’ll now turn our attention, in our series of record book posts, to career totals in the minor leagues. Keep in mind that these stats began in 2006, with the first draft I was able to cover.
So, we’ll start with career runs scroed.
|1||Clint Robinson||Harrisonburg ’05-06||534|
|2||Joey Butler||New Market ’06||448|
|3||Tony Thomas||Harrisonburg ’05||440|
|4||Blake Tekotte||Woodstock ’06||398|
|5||Ben Guez||Covington ’06||395|
|6||Tyler Kuhn||Luray ’06-07||356|
|7||Collin Cowgill||Covington ’05||338|
|8||Eric Campbell||Luray ’06||337|
|9||Scott Cousins||Harrisonburg ’05||336|
|10||John Raynor||New Market ’04||334|
Get used to this sight, ladies and gentlemen- Clint Robinson has had the most decorated career since he was drafted in 2007. Butler is back in the U.S. to play, and Thomas, Tekotte, and Guez will also most likely spend most of 2015 in the minors.
Eric Campbell made his major league debut with the Mets in 2014, and may have earned a spot in the majors in 2015 with very good production (mostly against lefties).
Cowgill is almost 100% a major leaguer, Cousins was attempting to convert to a pitcher, and Raynor is no longer in pro ball (but he still played in the majors for a little bit). Kuhn tore up the independent American Association in 2014 after reaching Triple-A with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Overall, a very solid list!
