Major League Record Book: Triples in a Season

Finally, a seasonal category that Daniel Murphy doesn’t dominate. Most triples in a season since 2006…

1 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2015 7
2 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 2015 5
Dan Murphy Luray ’05 2016 5
Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 2016 5
5 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 2009 4
Jon Jay Staunton ’04 2012 4
Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2012 4
Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2013 4
Dan Murphy Luray ’05 2013 4
Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2016 4

Jason Kipnis owns 4 slots, Murphy 3, and Cory Spangenberg, Ryan Schimpf, and Jon Jay all have 1.

But, this is only because Brett Gardner isn’t included:

  • 10 in 2013
  • 8 in 2011 and 2014
  • 7 in 2010
  • 6 in 2009 and 2016

That means Brett would own 6 spots on this list! Amazing what speed will do, eh?
