JBJ's hit streak among least probable

Jackie Bradley Jr. hit .249 last season, but this year has been a different story. The outfielder's 29-game hitting streak ties Roger Peckinpaugh for the longest in the modern era (since 1900) after hitting below .250 in the season prior, per Elias Sports Bureau.

  • 2016: Jackie Bradley Jr., 29 (active)
  • 1919: Roger Peckinpaugh, 29
  • 2000: Gabe Kapler, 28
  • 1996: John Flaherty, 27

Don't forget about Xander Bogaerts

While Jackie Bradley Jr. has been getting all the attention with his 29-game hitting streak, Bogaerts has put together a solid streak of his own. The shortstop has hit in 18 straight games, the second-longest streak in the majors behind JBJ, ESPN Stats & Info notes.

JBJ hitting to all fields during streak
