Victor Martinez (2007)

Going back nearly a decade and with a few close calls from Michael Brantley (97 in 2014), Asdrubal Cabrera (92 in 2011), and Shin-Soo Choo (90 in 2010), it is Victor Martinez's 114 runs batted in during the 2007 season as the next player who eclisped 100 when looking back on the history of the franchise. eclipsed

Martinez's 114 RBIs in 2007 set a new career high, the previous mark being 108 in 2004. Martinez would also register 108 between Cleveland and Boston in 2009, in addition to driving in 103 two times in Detroit (2011, 2014). Unlike the previous player on this list, Martinez's postseason performance was not a complete disappointment, driving in seven runs with two home runs and two doubles in 11 games against the Yankees and Red Sox. But like Napoli, Martinez's lone postseason with Cleveland did not end with a championship at year's end.

The .879 OPS from this season is his second-highest total when playing a full season with one team. Martinez led the American League in on-base percentage (career-high .409) and all of baseball in OPS (.974, also a career-high) during the 2014 season with the Tigers. Martinez registered a .912 OPS in 56 games during the 2009 season following his trade to Boston.
