This is a fascinating list. Take a gander at the top career batting averages in the minor leagues since the 2006 draft…
|1||Tommy La Stella||Haymarket ’09||0.319|
|2||Clint Robinson||Harrisonburg ’05-06||0.302|
|3||Tyler White||Haymarket ’10||0.301|
|4||Jon Jay||Staunton ’04||0.300|
|5||Dan Murphy||Luray ’05||0.299|
|6||John Raynor||New Market ’04||0.297|
|7||Tyler Kuhn||Luray ’06-07||0.295|
|8||Yonder Alonso||Luray ’06||0.294|
|Cory Spangenberg||Winchester ’10||0.294|
|10||Ryan McBroom||Haymarket ’11-12||0.291|
THIS is a high-powered list. The only players who have not played in the major leagues are Tyler Kuhn and Ryan McBroom. Kuhl made it to Triple-A, and McBroom is still ascending through the Blue Jays system.
If you hit, you play. I think that’s what we can take from this list.
