Trey Turner (30, Philadelphia Phillies), who is considered to have one of the best sliding skills in the game, will attempt to set a new all-time record.
Through 153 games of the season through July 27, Turner is batting .263 with 26 home runs, 76 RBI, 101 runs scored, 165 hits, a .316 OPS and a .770 slugging percentage.
Plus 29 stolen bases. Amazingly, he hasn’t been caught stealing a single time, meaning Turner has a 100% stolen base success rate this season.
Turner also has a 34-game stolen base streak after one failed attempt on September 6 last year. Five last year and 29 this season.
Turner is known for his ability to steal bases. He has 259 career stolen bases with 42 errors. His career stolen base rate is 86%.
According to MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, this is the most stolen bases by a player in a single season without being caught stealing.카지노사이트
Until now, the record was held by Chase Utley in 2009. 23 steals. Zero failed attempts. Alcides Escobar from 2013 is second with 22.
Further back, Quinton Berry and Kevin McReynolds had 21 steals in 2012 and 1988, and Paul Molitor had 20 steals in 1994, all without a single failure.
Now Turner will attempt to become the only player in the majors with a 30+ stolen base single season and zero caught stealing. Of course, he’s just one stolen base away from that record.
Philadelphia has five games left in the season. It will be interesting to see if Turner, who possesses a great eye for the ball and top-notch sliding skills, can become the first player to change the record books.
