Projected Mid-Season MLB Statistical Leaders

We’re just past halfway through the 2011 MLB season. That means it’s time to multiply everything by two and see what happens! I did this at a third of the way through the season as well.

I have included the current MLB record along with the projected number for the leader in each category. I did this by taking the total games played for each player’s team and extrapolating their current stats based on that.


Statistic Record Current Pace Leader(s)
AVG 0.440 0.354 Jose Reyes
AB 716 682 Starlin Castro
PA 778 739 Rickie Weeks
H 262 236 Jose Reyes
1B 225 160 Jose Reyes
2B 67 53 Adrian Gonzalez
3B 36 29 Jose Reyes
HR 73 51 Jose Bautista
R 192 141 Curtis Granderson
RBI 191 143 Adrian Gonzalez
BB 232 133 Jose Bautista
IBB 120 27 *2 tied, see below
SO 223 217 Drew Stubbs
HBP 51 32 Carlos Quentin
GDP 36 38 Adrian Gonzalez
SB 130 67 Michael Bourn
CS 42 19 Jacoby Ellsbury

*IBB Leaders: Jose Bautista, Miguel Cabrera


Statistic Record Current Pace Leader(s)
W 59 21 *5 tied, see below
L 48 20 *3 tied, see below
CG 75 12 *2 tied, see below
ShO 16 8 Cliff Lee
SV 62 49 *3 tied, see below
HLD 40 41 Tyler Clippard
IP 680 266 Roy Halladay
H 772 256 Chris Carpenter
ER 291 131 Fausto Carmona
HR 50 47 Bronson Arroyo
BB 289 115 Jonathan Sanchez
HBP 54 20 Jon Lester
WP 63 25 A.J. Burnett
BK 16 6 *2 tied, see below
SO 513 269 Clayton Kershaw

*W Leaders: Jair Jurrjens, Justin Verlander, Roy Halladay, CC Sabathia, Kevin Correia
*L Leaders: Fausto Carmona, Jeremy Guthrie, J.A. Happ
*CG Leaders: James Shields, Roy Halladay
*SV Leaders: Heath Bell, Craig Kimbrel, Joel Hanrahan
*BK Leaders: Anibal Sanchez, Cole Hamels

Okay, Kevin Correia is still projected for over 20 wins. Albert Pujols won’t break the GDP record any more, but Adrian Gonzalez may come close to it. Tyler Clippard is now projected to break the holds record and Bronson Arroyo may challenged the home runs allowed record. Drew Stubbs seems to be the new Mark Reynolds, but with about half of the power.
