Erick Aybar Reaches Franchise Milestone

On Sunday, Erick Aybar became the 39th Angel in club history to record 2,000 Plate Appearances as an Angel.

At 27, Aybar just became a veteran.


He ranks 41st in club history with 6.6 Wins Above Replacement. His Offensive WAR is actually at 6.8, tying him with Lance Parrish for 38th place in club history.

His .277 batting average is tied with Bobby Abreu and Juan Rivera for 23rd all time. Just ahead of him are David Eckstein and Torii Hunter tied for 21st place at .278

His 506 career hits are just behind Torii Hunter's 508 hits as an Angel for 36th place (Torii had 2,046 Plate Appearances under the Halo after play Sunday).

Aybar's 23 triples tie him with Gary Pettis for 11th all time in club history. His 62 stolen bases put him one ahead of Albie Pearson for 21st all time.

Top ten anyone? His 42 Sacrifices rank 10th in a tie with Chone Figgins - who took 4,075 Plate Appearances as an Angel to accrue that many.

So far a solid Angel career, playing at the peak of his physical vitality and still under club control thru the end of next season. Ladies and Gentlemen, Erick Aybar!
