5 mind blowing statistics from the Chicago Cubs' first month
4. Nico Hoerner's 25 game on base streak
Cub's second baseman Nico Hoerner has been outstanding in the first month, as the 25-year-old has reached base safely in almost every contest of the season so far with his streak extending to 25 games on Sunday. His production out of the leadoff spot is something the Cubs haven't seen in years, and his ability to set the table has been a huge part of this offense. Hoerner has earned that contract extension as he is leading the team in several categories like batting average (.328), hits (39) and stolen bases (10). The stolen bases stat is truly impressive, as Hoerner is currently tied for sixth in the entire league in the category. With a new era of stealing bags seemingly on the rise, Hoerner's ability to take that extra base is incredibly valuable.
