Derek Jeter led MLB in jersey sales for third straight year

28 Comments

MLB released its annual list of top-selling jerseys and Derek Jeter topped the list for the third consecutive season.

Here’s the complete top 10 since the All-Star break:

1. Derek Jeter, Yankees
2. Josh Hamilton, Rangers
3. Ichiro Suzuki, Mariners
4. Bryce Harper, Nationals
5. Mike Trout, Angels
6. Andrew McCutchen, Pirates
7. Yu Darvish, Rangers
8. Chipper Jones, Braves
9. Justin Verlander, Tigers
10. Robinson Cano, Yankees

Albert Pujols not cracking the top 10 with his new Angels jersey is somewhat surprising and Darren Rovell of ESPN.com notes that Miguel Cabrera ranks just 19th.

There’s no list of worst-selling jerseys, but I’ll just assume it was J.J. Putz for like the 10th straight year.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
