On The Range-MLB Golfers

Today we head out On The Range with MLB-Golfers. For me personally, baseball is the GREATEST sport of all time, yes even ahead of golf. Growing up watching Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell, Lance Berkman, Billy Wagner, Chipper Jones, Tom Glavine, how could one not fall in love with the game? Today though we take a look at MLB players who have shown some talent on the links. Take a look at the full list on Golf Digest. *Stats accurate as of 9/19/2019 8:00 AM EDT* Baseball-Reference.

On The Range-MLB Golfers

Hall of Famer John Smoltz spent the majority of his career pitching for the Atlanta Braves. Smoltz was part of some of the best Brave teams in history, during the 90’s and early 2000’s when the Braves were in the playoffs almost every single season. He had the opportunity to share the diamond with fellow players such as Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Chipper Jones, Javy Lopez, and many others.

Kyle Freeland 0.2 HCP

Last year was a coming-out party for Freeland 17 wins, 2.85 ERA, and a 4th place finish for the Cy Young, this year though has not been as kind. While Freeland is currently on the 10 day DL we wish him the best in his rehab and hope to see him on the course this off-season.

Ian Happ 2 HCP

Ian Happ burst on the scene in 2016 with the Chicago Cubs hitting 24 home runs, .253 batting average, and a .328 on-base percentage. Currently, the Cubs have a lot of talent on the roster and Happ hasn’t quite gotten as many at-bats in the following years. During the off-season, Happ is able to maintain a 2 handicap on the course, so if baseball goes south maybe we see him make a run for the PGA Tour.

Mike Trout 8.5 HCP

MVP, I mean Mike Trout, is arguably the best player in baseball right now. Trout came out of New Jersey and has established himself as one of the best players, not only now but all-time in Major League Baseball. Currently, Trout has the highest contract awarded in North American sports history, 12 years $426 million, Trout should be able to afford a membership at any number of courses. Mike Trout recently elected to have surgery on a toe injury that he suffered, we wish him a speedy recovery.

Joe Mauer 10 HCP

Joe Mauer begins the battle of the catchers, maybe once they all retire we can see them battle it out on the golf course. Apparently, Mauer is just an all-around athlete. Joe Mauer was drafted #1 overall by the Minnesota Twins in 2001 but he was also committed as a top QB recruit to Florida State University. Mauer was named the 2001 Gatorade Player of the Year. It is almost unfair when 1 person has that much talent!

Buster Posey 10 HCP

Posey is our second catcher on the list. Posey, like Mauer, has spent his entire career with 1 team. Posey has established himself as a stalwart behind the dish. While his 2019 numbers don’t reflect his career numbers he is still a daily starter for the San Fransico Giants at age 32. Recently, Posey has been listed as DTD with body tightness/soreness.

JT Realmuto 10 HCP

The last catcher on our list, JT Realmuto is the youngest of the 3 we feature. Realmuto was originally with the Miami Marlins but was traded during their rebuilding phase to the Philadelphia Phillies. In Philadelphia Realmuto has continued his success and established himself as one of the best catchers currently playing in the Major League Baseball.

Mookie Betts 12 HCP

Betts is coming off an MVP season in 2018. While the numbers aren’t quite the same he is still an elite talent in baseball. The Red Sox have had a disappointing year and they recently let go of their General Manager Dave Dombrowski. The biggest question facing Mookie is will the Red Sox re-sign him? We want to wish him a speedy recovery from his current injury, left foot inflammation.
