Bogaerts and Devers have stalled out with 50 doubles, but Castellanos has kept right on.  He's now got 55.  There are only 24 such seasons in baseball history.  As noted previously, Jose Ramirez is the most recent with 56 in 2017, but no player has achieved 60 since 1936.  Helton had 59 in 2000.  There are only 6 player seasons with 60 or more doubles, all between 1926 and 1936.  It sure would be cool to have another.

A few interesting notes about these doubles seasons:  

Only two of the players had 100 ore more walks.  Helton and Carlos Delgago also in 2000.  Helton and Delgado also were two of the only 3 with 40+ HR.  Castellanos has far surpassed the record with 140 Ks among players with 55+ doubles.  Lance Berkman 2001, Brian Roberts 2009, Craig Biggio 1999, and Delgado are the only others with 100 or more Ks.

All but 3 had 100 or more runs.  Castellanos could join them.  He's got 93 right now. Earl Webb, who set the record with 67, only scored 96 runs despite batting 333 with a 404 OBP.  George Burns who had 64 scored 97 runs despite leading the league in Hits with 216 and slashing 358/394/494.  And Garret Anderson, who had 56 doubles in 2002 and only 93 Runs.

Speaking of Anderson, he had fewer walks (30) than Castellanos (only 38 so far).  Joe Medwick (34), George Burns (28), and Gee Walker (23) also had fewer.

Only Billy Herman 57 in 1936 and Gee Walker 55 also in 1936 (the year of the double) did not lead their league in doubles.  Castellanos will lead the majors, but not a league this year due to the the trade from the Tigers to the Cubs.
