For the first time in the 2024 season, and after almost a month of action in the Major Leagues, the Puerto Rican shortstop Javier Baezof the Detroit Tigershad a hitting streak of several consecutive hitting games, before ending it in Tuesday’s shootout.

Baez had five games in a row hitting freely between last Wednesday and Monday of this week, raising his average momentarily to .203.

During that five-game stretch, Baez hit seven hits in 20 at-bats for a .350 average, driving in four of the eight runs that has been produced so far this campaign.

On Tuesday, however, the streak was stopped by going 0-for-4 in Detroit’s 4-2 victory over Tampa Bay.

The Puerto Rican shortstop’s overall numbers for the campaign are still below expectations, with a batting average of .192, with only one home run and eight RBIs. He has an OPS of .492 and an on-base percentage of .218.
