he has 220 minor league homers and a healthy .301 average through 320 games


:-° Is this stat correct?
Ichiro? No...
Dunn? No...
Ichiro Dunn! 106 runs, 23 home runs, 87 rbis, 23 stolen bases, 0.313 season average
Adam Suzuki! 106 runs, 23 home runs, 87 rbis, 23 stolen bases, 0.313 season average

Not even close. He has a respectable 54 homers, with a 300 average in 300 games. Both good numbers, but not 220 in 320. That's equate to 110 homers per season.

Hope thathelps.

That seems more reasonable to me. I see where the number 220 comes from after checking that link. He has 220 rbi's in 321 games in the minor leagues. :-D

Edit: You're welcome ;-D
Ichiro? No...
Dunn? No...
Ichiro Dunn! 106 runs, 23 home runs, 87 rbis, 23 stolen bases, 0.313 season average
