Andres Perez sets new Revolution all-time total bases mark

Perez safe

Another game, another milestone for Andres Perez.  This season he’s already become the Revolution all-time leader in doubles and total hits, and with a second inning solo homer July 20 in a 5-4 loss at Long Island, he added total bases to his resume as well.

The home run gave Perez 606 total bases in a Revolution uniform in just over two and a half seasons with the club, surpassing the 605 accumulated by outfielder Scott Grimes in three seasons (2010-2012).  It’s a significant record on it’s own, but especially so considering Grimes led all of professional baseball in runs scored in 2010 with 138.

Perez’s homer also pulled him into a tie with James Shanks, whom he just passed for the all-time franchise hit lead, for fourth on the Revolution home run list (41).  Perez’s next long ball will tie him with Jason Aspito (42) for third, with second place all-time also within reach (Grimes, 45).  Chris Nowak is the career Revs home run leader (59).

An expanded and updated list of franchise total base leaders is after the jump, which includes three active players in the current top 10:

Andres Perez (2012-13, 15), 606
Scott Grimes (2010-12), 605
James Shanks (2010-13), 596
Ramon Castro (2010-12), 546
Eric Patterson (2013-15), 509
Jason Aspito (2007-09), 501
Keoni DeRenne (2007-09), 494
Chris Nowak (2011-12), 456
Salvador Paniagua (2011-15), 445
Matt Esquivel (2008-09), 421
