Chad Tracy is actually on pace for 22-23 homers. He's played in 98 of the D-Back's 101 games, that puts him on pace to play 157 games this year.
14 HR * (157/98) = 22.4 HR
Tracy is also on pace to score 101 runs and knock in 91 RBI. Not bad for a guy that was drafted around the 11-13th round.
He had a monster September last year and hit 17 HR after the ASB, so it's not a reach to think that he could increase his pace from 22-23 HR to 25-27 HR as we get into August and September.
