Stanton’s bat could not be contained in 2014. Among outfielders Stanton led in RBIs (105), Home Runs (37), Slugging Percentage (.555), total bases (299), and lead the Majors in walks (94). Of those 94 walks 24 of them were intentional walks, which also lead the Majors! Of all those stats he led the National League in Home Runs, Walks, Total Bases, and Slugging Percentage. These are some impressive numbers, but Stanton also put up some other great numbers even though they didn’t lead the league. He had 31 doubles (which was the most in his career), an OPS of .950 (second in the National League), 155 hits, and 89 runs (both best in his career). Stanton was a Silver Hitter. Stanton is joining Gary Sheffield and Miguel Cabrera as Marlins who’ve won the Silver Slugger Award as outfielders.
This isn’t the last time we will see Stanton with some new moments. Join me next time to see when Stanton cracks the Top 150 again and what other Marlins players have been added onto this list. Until next time… Let’s Go Marlins!
