All-Time Top 100 – #97

We have 97 days left until Opening Day and we’re looking at an 11-year MLB vet who fills the #97 spot in our All-Time Top 100 Countdown!

#97 – Ryan Langerhans

Sugar Land (2013 – ’14)

Outfielder

What’s a Texan man to do after a decade of traveling around spending time on MLB rosters for 10 consecutive seasons? Well, if you’re Ryan Langerhans, you head right back to Texas and play some ball with the Sugar Land Skeeters. Ryan not only played well enough to land at #97 on our all-time list, but he also earned an 11th consecutive MLB season by getting signed mid-season by Toronto to play for triple-A Buffalo, before returning to Sugar Land in September and then finally re-signing and playing 4 games with the Blue Jays. Ryan must have enjoyed the sweet life in Sugar Land because he came back to the squad for the 2014 campaign before calling it a career once and for all.

Langerhans managed a 141 career OPS+ and 3.8 WAR in 140 games with a .281/.411/.462 slash and 18 HRs. Langerhans’ finished 2014 with an OBP that was top-5 in the league (.407), a top-10 OPS (.856), and more walks (91) than strikeouts (86). Though his stay in the Atlantic League was short, Langerhans made his mark. He was a part of 2 playoff runs in Sugar Land, going so far as to ask for his release from Toronto after the 2013 MiLB season to rejoin the Skeeters before the Blue Jays again required his services in Toronto. If Langerhans’ numbers weren’t enough to get him into our All-Time Top 100, choosing to join Sugar Land 3 times in 2 seasons certainly put him over the line and into the #97 spot.
