Odd rarity: Jose Reyes records first triple with Blue Jays
After averaging one triple every 45.9 at-bats previously in his career, Reyes finally tripled for the first time in a Blue Jays uniform in his 521st at-bat with the club.
For much of his career, Jose Reyes has been a triples machine, which is why it was weird when this happened Tuesday night during a 5-4 Jays victory:
It was weird that it was weird. Yes, that really does make sense, because Reyes triples shouldn't be weird.
Reyes has led the majors in triples four times in his career. He's had at least 10 in a season seven times. Prior to joining Toronto, he accumulated 111 career three-baggers in 5,095 at-bats -- or one triple every 45.9 at-bats, which is a pretty astounding rate in this day and age.
Reyes' triple Tuesday came in his 521st at-bat with the Blue Jays. So it was a rarity to see him do it in a Blue Jays uniform, which is odd.
