Major League Record Book: Walks in a Season

Next up: most walks in a major league season by a VBL alumnus since the 2006 draft!

1 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2013 76
2 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2012 67
3 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 2012 62
4 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2016 60
5 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2015 57
6 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 2013 52
7 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 2014 50
8 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 2016 45
9 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 2015 42
Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 2016 42

You know what’s weird about this list? No Daniel Murphy! Even though Daniel has played six full major league seasons, more or less, he never walked more than 39 times in a season. Of course, he doesn’t strike out very much, either.

Anyway, Jason Kipnis is on this list 5 times, Yonder Alonso 3, and Jon Jay and Ryan Schimpf show up once.

Interesting that no one has walked more than 76 times in a season….

Brett Gardner Watch: Brett has had 6 seasons with more than 42 walks. The most is 79, in 2010.
