The Cincinnati Reds’ shortstop prospect Blake Trahan is continuing his dominance at the plate as he officially reached base in twenty-four straight games.

As shortstop for the Class A Advanced Daytona Tortugas of the Florida State League, Trahan currently has the longest active on-base streak in the FSL. He is now tied with Taylor Ard of Jupiter who also had a twenty-four game streak.

In just his second season of pro ball, Trahan is currently hitting just .211 this season but in the last ten games as hit .368. He has four stolen bases and fourteen doubles on the season but sixteen walks which has allowed him to successfully reach base.

In his most performance on Tuesday night against the Charlotte Stone Crabs, Trahan was 2 for 3 with a homer and two runs scored to help add to the streak.

The twenty-two year old was drafted in the third round of the 2015 MLB Draft while playing at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. After signing with the Reds, Trahan was assigned to the Pioneer League and was then promoted to Daytona before the close of the season. In 2015 he hit .281 with 15 RBIs and an impressive ten batters.
