Moving along to stolen bases in one major league season since the 2006 draft….

9 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 2012 10
Jon Jay Staunton ’04 2013 10

I suppose we need to start with Brett Gardner, don’t we? Brett has stolen more than 10 bases EIGHT times in his major league career, topping out at 49 in 2011. He also stole 47 in 2010, which would give him the top two spots.

As it is, Jason Kipnis is on here five times, Dan Murphy three times, and Jon Jay twice.
