I'm guessing a few of those HBPs are by annoyed pitchers trying to get even for him stealing on them.

Good lord I hope not. And I would hope if that was the case there'd quickly be a call from Rizzo to the opposing team's GM to shut that crap down. What purpose could it possibly serve any team to have pitchers beaning top prospects in the low minors?

I doubt that's it though. He had 13 HBP in 213 PA in 2014 and 21 HBP in 261 PA in 2015. Seems like he just likes to set up inside and might not have a problem leaning into one :)

I have no problem with it. Ask Craig Biggio - it's a good way to get on base an extra time every series!
