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% success rate this season.
Turner has also stolen 34 consecutive bases since his one failed attempt on September 6 last year. Five last year and 29 this season.
Turner is known for his ability to run the 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.
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 stolen bases in 2012 and 1988, and Paul Molitor had 20 stolen bases in 1994 without a single error.메이저사이트
Now, Turner will attempt to become the only player in the majors to have a 30+ stolen base and zero caught stealing in a single season. 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.
