The Brewer Advent Calendar #16: Alcides Escobar

New, 31 comments

Behind today's door we find...Alcides Escobar!

As the heir apparent at shortstop, most of the accolades regarding Escobar's game are reserved for his defense. With that said, he's off to a pretty nice start with the bat as well, hitting .310/.338/.372 in his first 138 major league plate appearances.

In fact, Escobar is only the second Brewer ever to collect 40 hits in his first 138 PAs:

Player Season(s) Hits
Ryan Braun 2007 42
Alcides Escobar 2008-2009 40
Paul Molitor 1978 39
Dale Sveum 1986 39
Tony Gwynn Jr 2006-2007 38
Steve Hovley 1969 38
Casey McGehee 2009 38
Kevin Barker 1999-2000 37
Pat Listach 1992 37
Bob Sheldon 1974-1975 37
