With his next home run, Ryan Braun will become the sixth player in Milwaukee Brewers history to hit 200-plus HRs as a Brewer. The current 200-HR club for the franchise: Robin Yount (251), Prince Fielder (230), Geoff Jenkins (212), Gorman Thomas (208) and Cecil Cooper (201).

If you add in Braun’s 119 career stolen bases with the club, he will become only the second player in Brewers history to have 200 home runs and 100 stolen bases with the franchise. Yount is currently the only member of that group with his 251 home runs and 271 steals.

Could there be any other current players who might be joining Yount (and Braun) in the near future on the 200-100 list?

There are two possibilities: Corey Hart has 151 home runs and 83 stolen bases with the Brewers, and second baseman Rickie Weeks has the 100-100 tag on his resume with 126 homers and 112 steals. Longevity, staying healthy and staying with the team will determine whether or not they join Yount and eventually Braun in the Brewers 200-100 club.

The following are the franchises that have players who collected 200-plus HRs and 100-plus stolen bases with the franchise.

Baltimore Orioles: Brady Anderson

Boston Red Sox: Carl Yastrzemski

Detroit Tigers: Lou Whitaker, Al Kaline

Kansas City Royals: George Brett

Milwaukee Brewers: Robin Yount

Minnesota Twins: Kirby Puckett

New York Yankees: Bernie Williams, Babe Ruth, Alex Rodriguez, Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter, Lou Gehrig

Oakland Athletics: Reggie Jackson, Jose Canseco

Houston Astros: Jimmy Wynn, Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell

New York Mets: David Wright, Daryl Strawberry

Philadelphia Phillies: Mike Schmidt

San Francisco Giants: Willie Mays, Barry Bonds

St. Louis Cardinals: Ray Lankford

Washington Nationals: Vladimir Guerrero, Andre Dawson
