BEFORE FAME

Brett won his first Gold Glove award in 2016. In the first nine years of his career (2009-16) with the Yankees, he has 218 stolen bases in 270 career attempts. His 80.7% success rate is fourth among active players with at least 250 career stolen base attempts. Brett was selected to his first career All-Star Game in 2015, becoming just the fifth position player drafted by the Yankees to make the All-Star team as a Yankee, (joining Thurman Munson, Don Mattingly, Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada).

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Brett is the Yankees’ longest-tenured player, having been drafted by the club in the third round of the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, and is one of five players drafted by the Yankees to collect at least 1,000 hits with the club (also Thurman Munson, Don Mattingly, Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada), all of whom spent their entire careers in pinstripes. Brett is one of four players in Yankees history to collect at least 1,000 hits and 200 stolen bases with the club over his first 10 seasons (also Derek Jeter, Willie Randolph and Hal Chase). He ranks fifth on the Yankees’ all-time list with 241 stolen bases and has nine seasons with double-digit steals (2008-11, ‘13-17), fourth-most in Yankees history behind Derek Jeter (17), Roy White (13) and Willie Randolph (12). Brett was selected to his first career All-Star Game in 2015, becoming just the fifth position player drafted by the Yankees to make the All-Star team as a Yankee, (joining Thurman Munson, Don Mattingly, Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada).

FUN FACT
