Did Tulo even get 200 with injuries?

Along with the other 3 we have, I’ll go:

Cargo, Pronk, Nomar

With the others being around 230, and Pronk at 213 (only one I know) I think this is correct. Unless Tulo has more than I think.

Nomar, Tulo and Pronk. 

Really thought you were going with 2 guys who had way less than expected. But this is my final guess before bed.

Yep.

5. Nomar 229

6. Tulo 225

7. Pronk 213


Of the 7 Uggla is only one to hit 30+ in a season more than 2x (5x) and all the others did it exactly 2x except Swish who only did it once but did go 20+ 9 straight years.


I saw a list of all-time HR by switch hitters and saw Swisher at 245 and couldn’t believe it, would’ve guessed 150-180. I would’ve debated between Wright and Cargo with the most.

People forget how good Swisher was in Oakland. There is a reason the Yankees paid up to sign him. And then he was good there to the point Tribe fans really got jacked when we got him (myself included).

That’s a solid decade career before what we all remember in Cleveland.
