10 Texas Rangers Stats That Stand Out

September 24, 2018 - 11:30 am

1 - Adrian Beltre’s stolen base total…the very same stolen base total he has had with the Rangers in each year he’s donned their threads since signing in 2011. That’s eight straight seasons with exactly one stolen base.

1.121 - Mike Minor’s walks + hits/inning pitched (WHIP) in 2018, the tenth best mark among SP in the AL.

2.5 – Jose Leclerc’s fWAR (Fangraphs War) this year, 4th best among MLB relievers.

3 - The amount of managers in franchise history who have won a division title with the Rangers. Jeff Banister is one of those three and while he’s now the former manager of the Rangers, hopefully fans appreciate what he accomplished in his four years,

10 - Defensive Runs Saved (DRS) logged by Rougned Odor, tied for the most among A.L. 2B with Ian Kinsler. Last year Odor ranked among the worst 2B in MLB based on most metrics and logged just 3 DRS over 162 games.

11 - The amount of players across all of MLB who have so far posted seasons of 50+ RBI, 50+ extra-base hits, 50+ BB while striking out fewer than 100 times. Rangers utility infielder Jurickson Profar was one of those 11.

14 - The amount of walks issued by RHP Tyler Phillips in 128 IP with A-ball Hickory, an astoundingly low number.

15 - Adrian Beltre’s ranking on MLB’s all-time hits list. With 3,162 hits, he trails Cal Ripken Jr.’s 3,184 for 14th, but after recently surpassing George Brett, Beltre became the all-time hits leader in MLB history among primary third baseman. 

52 - Consecutive games on-base for Shin-soo Choo earlier this year, the longest such streak in franchise history and one of the highlights of the 2018 season.

66 - Home runs hit by Robinson Chirinos while catching for the Rangers over his career, the second most in franchise history. He trails only Pudge by juuuuust a bit. Pudge had 217 HR catching for the Rangers.
