Carlos Beltrán Reaches a Bunch of Milestones, Chris Archer and James Shields Just Miss Losing 20, Chase Utley Goes the Entire Season Without Grounding into a Double Play and Other Statistical Tidbits of 2016
Beltrán’s strong hitting in 2016 was key for the veteran as achieving 400 home runs, 2,500 hits, 1,500 RBI, and 1,500 runs will help him garner votes with the more traditional/old school Hall of Fame electorate who favor round milestones over analytical value. Moreover, at season’s end, Beltrán sat at an impressive 70.4 Wins Above Replacement and 36.4 Wins Above Average for his career, so he will undoubtedly draw strong support from younger, more sabermetrically-inclined voters as well. While Beltrán lacks the 500 home run or 3,000 hit milestone that would quickly gain him Hall of Fame election, the veteran’s attaining of a quartet of secondary milestones underscore his excellent career and make the switch-hitter a strong candidate for election by the BBWAA or at the very least an eventual selection by the Era Committee.
