Did You Know? 09/23/2010

This edition of Did You Know? is all about Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays and his improbable assault on the 50-home run mark:
  • Bautista owns the Blue Jays' single-season home run record, breaking George Bell's 23-year-old mark of 47.
  • Bautista is the 26th player in MLB history to reach the 50-home run mark in a season, and the first since Alex Rodriguez (54) and Prince Fielder (50) both did it in 2007.
  • All 50 of Bautista's home runs have been to left or left centerfield.
  • Bautista has 26 home runs since the All Star break, a Blue Jays’ record.
  • Bautista has a major league-high 31 home runs at home this season.
Fantasy owners will have to decide how high (or low) to draft Bautista in 2011. He's currently the 10th ranked player on ESPN and 9th ranked on Yahoo!. He will still be 3B/OF eligible next season, having played 48 games at 3B and 105 in the OF.
