Gleyber broke a lot of records tonight, but to me the most impressive stat is that he now has 36 career HRs in 610 ABs. It seems like a very distant memory when he first came up in April 2018 and we thought he would maybe peak at 20 HR power.

Given 169 career games, 36 home runs in that span ties him for 38th all time, with a mix of interesting characters: Jonny Gomes, Kyle Schwarber, Jay Bruce, Jimmie Hall, Adam Duvall, Tony C, Hal Trosky, and Earl Williams.

Although park factors, and in some cases age, clearly impacted many of these names, this outpaces: DiMaggio (34), Ted Williams (34), Trout (33), Eddie Mathews (32), ARod (32), Cepeda (31), Killebrew (31), Mays (27), Mantle (26), Griffey Jr., and Vlad Sr. (25).

Just about every one of those guys except A-Rod is an outfielder, which speaks to Gleyber’s real value as a power hitting middle infielder.
