Baseball Reference’s Stat of the Day blog does the numbers work and determines who among active players has the most plate appearances with 0 homers.

Most are pitchers, of course, though #1 on the list is Angel OF Reggie Willits with 785 plate appearances. 

What struck me is the number of Cubs and former Cubs on the list.  Most notably, Ryan Dempster who ranks #6 with 491. 

That’s ok, that’s not his job.
