  • Tracking the most stolen bases by teams and players in 2022
  • Jon Berti (Marlins) leads with most stolen bases by a player (28)
  • Miami Marlins lead with most stolen bases by a team (90)

For those who enjoy a little flutter, the leadup to the baseball playoffs could not be more exciting. Despite the decline in stolen bases over the last few decades, MLB betting on players to steal a bag continues to be a cult favorite.

As you check out daily odds at the online sportsbook, below you’ll find the weekly updated stolen base records (through August 7).

Jon Berti, Miami Marlins – 28

The Marlins’ infielder knows how to hustle. Berti is two stolen bases ahead of any other player in the league, and he hasn’t even played since before the All-Star Break due to a left groin strain.

Berti is batting .271 with an OBP of .365, so he has plenty of opportunities to show his skills as a baserunner. In 31 stolen base attempts this season, he has only been caught three times, so if my man starts running, he’s very likely to advance successfully. 

Jorge Mateo, Baltimore Orioles – 26

Not too far behind Berti, Baltimore’s Mateo has stolen a respectable 26 bags this season. The shortstop is only batting .220 this season with an OBP of .270, so he isn’t getting on base an awful lot, but when he is, you see him work his magic.

Mateo has attempted 31 base steals this season and has only been caught five times. Baserunning is clearly a talent for the 27-year-old — hopefully, he will be able to strengthen his batting so we can see him hustle more often.
