Alex Rodriguez in 2015 reached 2,000 RBI, 3,000 Hits, 2,000 Runs.

The number of players to reach those totals ever, not just in one season:

2,000 RBI: 4
3,000 Hits: 29
2,000 Runs: 8

Only one player other than Rodriguez reached all three: Hank Aaron.

Their ranks:
Aaron: 1, 3, 4
Rodriguez: 4, 21, 8

In addition to Aaron two other players are in the top ten in all three:
Cobb: 8, 2, 2
Musial: 7, 4, 10

Aaron started in 1954 and reached those milestones:

2,000 RBI: 1972
3,000 Hits: 1970
2,000 Runs: 1973, same year as 700 home runs

Rodriguez has almost 12,000 plate appearances.  Aaron reached that in 1972 and finished with 13,941.  Rodriguez has 686 home runs and is likely to reach 700 in 2016.
