Following a 1-for-5 performance today for Double-A Frisco, teenage shortstop Jurickson Profar extended his hitting streak to 17 games. The Texas League record stands at 37 games, a feat last accomplished in 1969.
The youngest player in the TL, Profar's production during the streak has been somewhat muted. He's batted .292/.321/.486 (21-for-72) with six doubles, three triples and a 4-to-14 walk-to-strikeout ratio. Because the 19-year-old bats first or second in the RoughRiders order he's averaged 4.6 plate appearances per game during the streak, turning in eight 1-for-4 days and three 1-for-5's.
Profar skipped over high Class A on his way to Frisco, where he continues to make rapid adjustments to Double-A competition. Consider the fact that he went 8-for-40 (.200) in his first 11 games this season, but his hit streak has boosted his season line to .259/.315/.464 through 112 at-bats.
