Most LAD walks in May

A few days ago we looked at where Cody Bellinger ranks in LAD May for home run runs and RBI.

How about we take a gander at Chris Taylor and the LAD May base on balls leaderboard. Taylor already has fifteen walks and while he’s a long way from the top, he could crack the top five (he’s already in the top ten), though playing time might be an issue with Logan Forsythe set to be activated tomorrow.

Wally Moon has the most walks with 24.

Some interesting names in year. Andy LaRoche? I’m shocked he ever got enough playing time to manage fifteen walks in a month. Got to love the split, a .216 BA with .444 OBP. How about that Dick Tracewski TSL? .211 .321 .289. Ha ha.
Orlando Hudson and Jose Cruz with seventeen walks.

There is that May 2014 Puig again. Can we have that guy back again?

And they say Maury Wills didn’t walk enough.

Of course Jimmy Wynn is near the top. That was the man’s calling card.

I was unaware of Wally Moon’s propensity for patience.
