In 2009, the Milwaukee Brewers' second baseman Rickie Weeks missed all but 37 games of the Brew-Crew's season. It was the fifth straight injury-shortened season of Weeks' career–out of five career seasons–and at the age of 26 it was beginning to look as though Weeks may never arrive.
Fast forward to 2010 and a shocking change has occurred. Weeks has missed only one game, leads the National League in plate appearances and at-bats, and is on pace to hit 30 home runs after never having hit more than 16 in any previous season.
What's more, through 118 games, Weeks league-leading PAs and ABs also represent career highs. But it gets better: With 11 more games played and nine more runs scored, Weeks will have set career records in games, PAs, ABs, runs, hits, doubles, home runs, RBI, and total bases.
And oh by the way, he's done all of this while also leading the league in being hit by a pitch. Pretty sturdy for an ordinarily injury-proned guy.
With the season Weeks is having in mind, let's have a look at the Top 10 Most Shocking Statistics from the 2010 Season.
