The 26 year-old Jackie Bradley Jr.┬áhas been off to a terrific start this season. For those of you who are familiar with Jackie, you probably know him for his unreal defense in center-field. If you didn’t already know, Bradley Jr. currently has a 21 game hitting streak. 21 GAMES.

Jackie is hitting .336 with 44 hits, 6 homers, 30 RBI’s, and 20 runs scored. Pretty impressive line for a guy hitting out of the 9 spot.

Here’s a highlight clip of Jackie Bradley Jr. hitting a grand slam against Oakland. Jackie finished the game with 6 RBI’s.

Jackie had a 15 game hitting streak after this game. Two days later, Bradley Jr. hit two bombs, driving in 6 yet again.

Here we are 4 days later, and Jackie is sitting at a 21 game hitting streak, the best in baseball so far. Will the streak ever end? I honestly don’t know. I can’t think back far enough to a game Jackie didn’t have at least one hit. He’s going for the record. The kid gives 100% on both offense and defense, and he’s such a crucial part to this Red Sox team, a team that’s currently 24-14. As of now, I would say Jackie deserves the starting spot in center for the AL in the ASG. Don’t try to argue with me on that. He’s the hottest hitter in baseball, has a cannon for an arm, and will catch anything hit in the outfield grass. He’s the full package, so get ready to hear his name a lot this season.

P.S. if you guys play Beat The Streak, Jackie’s a pretty reliable selection every time. Just saying.
