Five Seasons – 2005-2009

Mark Teahen doesn’t leap to mind as much of a triples hitter, but he produced 24 in his five seasons with the Royals, including a career-high eight in 2007. Teahen was acquired as the supposed key player when Kansas City traded Johnny Damon.

Teahen just never developed into a legitimate, productive every day player, for the KC Royals or anyone else.

Kevin Seitzer

3B, 24

Six Seasons – 1986-1991

Kevin Seitzer first joined the KC Royals in 1986, and became the regular third baseman in 1987 in his first full year, moving Kansas City legend, George Brett across the diamond to first base.

As a rookie, Seitzer finished second in the American Rookie of the Year balloting, behind Mark McGuire. He hit .323, knocked out 207 base hits, and legged out eight triples. Unfortunately, Seitzer never topped those marks for hits and triples – not for the Royals or for anyone else.

Seitzer later spent time as the Royals batting coach.
