Carl Crawford swipes 400th career stolen base

Aug 1, 2010, 12:13 PM EDT

Rays outfielder Carl Crawford picked up his 400th career stolen base on Saturday in the Rays’ 5-4 loss to the Yankees.  He finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and is now batting .307 on the season with an .855 OPS, 12 homers, 56 RBI and 38 total successful swipes.

Crawford is just the seventh player in the modern era to reach 400 stolen bases, according to the St. Petersburg Times’ Marc Topkin, and he’s quickly climbing up the all-time list.  Here is a snapshot of where he stands:

1. Rickey Henderson   1,406
2. Lou Brock                938
10. Honus Wagner        723
15. Kenny Lofton          622
36. Paul Molitor            504
51. Steve Sax              444
64. Chuck Knoblauch   407
65. Donie Bush            406
66. Frank Chance        403
67. Carl Crawford         400

Henderson’s record is basically untouchable, but the 28-year-old Crawford could certainly be a Top 10 or Top 15 steals man before his career is through.  Of course, that is assuming he stays healthy.
