Dodgers: 2019 Team Sets Another Franchise Record for Home Runs

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.
