Casey Kotchman leads the Seattle Mariners in RBI despite spending most of April in the sixth or seventh spot in the lineup.
And that's not his most impressive stat.
What is? A streak of errorless games at first base that has reached 200 consecutive games - the second longest in major league history.
"A lot of luck," Kotchman said. "A lot of help from teammates. I don't really think about it."
Never miss a local story.
The streak dates back to June 21, 2008, and the only one that went longer belongs to Kevin Youkilis, who went 238 games without an error from 2006 to 2008.
If Kotchman isn't wild to talk about his streak, others are a bit more impressed.
"I've been through two, three generations of first basemen, and he's the best I've ever seen," Chone Figgins said. "Soft hands, real athletic. He always seems to be in the right position when there's a bad hop."
Kotchman reminds manager Don Wakamatsu of another Mariner - center fielder Franklin Gutierrez.
"They play with the same passion, and like Guti, Kotchman works as hard practicing as he does playing," Wakamatsu said. "They work at the small things. I've seen him for years, had him in the Angels system - he was always this good.
"It's a year-round thing with Casey. He'll take ground balls in November, practice short-hopping bad throws in January."
"It's as simple as trying to make plays," Kotchman said. "If a ball is hit hard to my right, I could let it go, I guess - but that's not me. I try to make every play."
His favorite play?
"Helping out a teammate on a bad throw," he said. "I know what errors feel like, and when you let a ball go and know it's off, your heart sort of stops. If I can make the play at the other end, I save that teammate going through the pain."
Does a guy with 200 consecutive errorless games even remember his last error? Oh, yeah.
"It was 2008, with the Angels in Philadelphia, interleague play," Kotchman rattled off. "And I made two in one game. Both could have been ruled hits - they were plays to my right with fast runners, but both were ruled errors."
If he doesn't think about the streak now, might he appreciate it whenever it comes to an end?
"I don't know why," Kotchman insisted. "I won't think about it, period. A lot of it is luck, but it doesn't affect the way I play day-to-day. If I thought about it, it might drive me crazy."
