Mid Season Triple Milestones
With most teams reaching the season mid-point by playing their 81st game of the season last weekend, its time to take a look at players that are on target for the triple milestones of a .300 batting average, 30 home runs and 100 RBIs and pitchers on target for 20 wins, 200 strikeouts and an ERA below 3.00.
There weren’t as many as I expected. Five position players and only one pitcher are on-target.
Chris Davis .332-31-80 Breakout season.
Miguel Cabrera .369-25-82 Going for his 7th.
Paul Goldschmidt .303-20-69 Did it in minors in 2010.
Carlos Beltran .308-19-50 Hasn’t done it before.
David Ortiz .317-16-57 Last did it in 2007.
Adam Wainwright 11-5, 114K, 2.22 ERA
