Miguel Cabrera notches 10th straight 100-RBI season

23 Comments

Miguel Cabrera collected his 100th RBI in Tuesday’s win over the Indians, making him the 17th player in big-league history to reach the century mark 10 times in his career. Cabrera has done it in every one of his full seasons as a major leaguer.

Here are all the players with 10 or more 100-RBI seasons:

14 – Alex Rodriguez –  13 consecutive
13 – Jimmie Foxx –  13 consecutive – Hall of Famer
13 – Lou Gehrig – 13 consecutive – Hall of Famer
13 – Babe Ruth – 8 consecutive – Hall of Famer
12 – Barry Bonds – 4 consecutive
12 – Manny Ramirez – 9 consecutive
12 – Al Simmons – 11 consecutive – Hall of Famer
11 – Hank Aaron – 5 consecutive – Hall of Famer
11 – Goose Goslin – 5 consecutive – Hall of Famer
11 – Albert Pujols – 10 consecutive
11 – Frank Thomas – 8 consecutive
10 – Miguel Cabrera – 10 consecutive
10 – Joe Carter – 6 consecutive
10 – Vladimir Guerrero – 5 consecutive
10 – Willie Mays – 8 consecutive – Hall of Famer
10 – Stan Musial – 5 consecutive – Hall of Famer
10 – Rafael Palmeiro – 9 consecutive

It’s pretty good company for Cabrera; the only guy there who doesn’t have Hall of Fame numbers is Joe Carter. And Cabrera figures to rack up at least a few more 100-RBI seasons before he’s done. He’s currently sitting at 1,223 RBI as a 30-year-old. The all-time leader, Hank Aaron, had 1,216 RBI of his 2,297 career RBI through age 30.

The Marlins announced on Sunday that outfielder Giancarlo Stanton will defend his Home Run Derby title when the city of Miami host’s the All-Star Game festivities next month.

Stanton, 27, defeated Todd Frazier in the finals of last year’s Home Run Derby at Petco Park, hitting 20 home runs to Frazier’s 13. Stanton hit a total of 61 home runs in the Derby. This will be the third Home Run Derby in which Stanton has participated.

Stanton also went 1-for-3 with a solo home run to help the Marlins defeat the Cubs 4-2 on Sunday. He’s now batting .274/.357/.551 with 20 home runs and 49 RBI in 311 plate appearances.

Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks left Sunday’s game against the Rangers after four innings due to soreness in his right oblique. After the game, Hicks said he expects to go on the 10-day disabled list and miss the next three to four weeks, MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports.

Hicks was 1-for-2 with a single before departing on Sunday. He entered the game batting .288/.397/.515 with 10 home runs and 37 RBI in 198 plate appearances. It is by far the best season of his career.

Jacoby Ellsbury is on his way back from a concussion, so the Yankees will only have to bridge the gap in center field for a week or two. Mason Williams could draw some starts in center field in the meantime.
