Dodgers: 2019 Team Sets Another Franchise Record for Home Runs

Dodgers continue to strike big with a ton of pop.

With Chris Taylor’s first home run of his pair on Monday night against the Colorado Rockies, the Dodgers surpassed a franchise record of significance.

The Dodgers now have a whopping total of ELEVEN players with double-digit home runs this season.

The full list of players with double-digit home runs is as follows: Cody Bellinger (44), Max Muncy (33), Joc Pederson (30), Justin Turner (26), Kiké Hernandez (17), Will Smith (13), Corey Seager (13), Alex Verdugo (12), Chris Taylor (11), David Freese (10), and AJ Pollock (10).

Matt Beaty is also in the hunt to be the twelfth player to join the list this season as he sits at eight after his home run on Monday night.

The 2018 Dodgers had 10 players with double-digit home run totals, which was the previous record.

To put things into perspective, only eight position players play on any given night as starters. The Dodgers have three players on top of that that have surpassed the double-digit home run mark and it is only the beginning of September. This record not only speaks to the 2019 Dodgers’ light tower power, but their depth as well.

This Dodgers team is special and is wholly characterized by their ability to not just have elite plate discipline, but to know when to send the ball over the fence. With a team full of sluggers, the possible records the Dodgers can break with their offense this season are endless.

  1. Impressive until you consider the Minnesota Twins having 11 double-digit HR guys of their own and eight with more than 20. The Twisn have a shot at six players with 30.

  2. While the Twins number is impressive, and the Yankees are close behind them, keep in mind they play in in DH league, so a ton more ABs for non-pitchers.

  3. Keep also in mind that HR’s will not come as easy in the PS as they do now. Well, except if Dodgers put Yimi Garcia on the PS roster, then those HR’s will come quite easy for the opposition.
