The active leader for the Red Sox in RBI is Hanley Ramirez who has knocked in 825 runners over his career. With him being 33 years old, and seven years left to play, he would have to accumulate 211 RBI each year, for seven years. His career high for RBI is 111, which he hit with the Red Sox last year. The chances of him increasing his RBI output by 100 for seven years is unlikely.
Mookie Betts, however, if a very likely candidate to come close to the record. Betts is only 24 years old, so he has 16 years left to play. With him already posting 219 career RBI, he would only need to drive in 130 RBI every year. His career high was last year when he his 113. That’s not a huge jump for a player like Betts.
