The White Sox future looks bright and present has a big highlight!

Sure the Giants and the White Sox are basically just playing out the string. But don’t tell Jose Abreu that. He legged out a triple and completed the cycle against the Giants.

It was the first White Sox cycle since Jose Valentin. The last White Sox cycle hit by someone with a first name OTHER than Jose was Chris Singleton in 1999.

Lots of young talent on this White Sox team. Maybe next Abreu can lead them to more wins.

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

Most Recent Cycle Hit For Each MLB Franchise (Updated For Cody Bellinger, July 15, 2017 )

CODY

Wilfredo Lee – AP

The Marlins still don’t have a cycle… but their fans witnessed one today!

Cody Bellinger can do it all and look here! Evidently doing it all includes tripling past Giancarlo Stanton and completing the cycle.

The Dodgers are red hot. Hell, they may not lose another game this year. And with Bellinger swinging his bat then the Dodgers could have back to back Rookies of the Year.

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

Still waiting for that first Marlins cycle!

Most Recent Cycle Hit For Each MLB Franchise (Updated For Nolan Arenado, June 18, 2017 )

RootCaptureSo Rockies fans can finally see one of their OWN players hit for the cycle!

Seems like Coors Field is the place to hit for the cycle. And man, Nolan Arenado found the ideal way to finish it. Needing only a homer to check all the boxes off, he launched his in the bottom of the 9th for 3 runs and his team down.

A walk off, come from behind multi run homer to finish the cycle. That’s not a bad day at the office!

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

The Most Recent Cycle Hit For All Teams (Updated for John Jaso, 9-28-2016)

Could this be the last cycle of the year?

John Jaso got the first ever cycle in PNC Park history. It has been a let down of a year for Pirate fans but at least they got a highlight towards the end of the year.

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

A Cycle in a losing cause!

Even when the Indians lose, they win SOMETHING. The Red Hot Indians had their 14 game winning streak snapped but saw the first Cleveland cycle since Travis Hafner did it in 2003.

It is a good time to be a Cleveland fan!

The First Cycle of the Year!

And true to 2016 Atlanta Braves style, the team almost lost the damn game. It took extra innings, but Freddie Freeman made the list. This might be the highlight of Atlanta’s season!

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

THE FIRST PADRE CYCLE!!!

 

No Padre has ever thrown a no hitter. No Padres team has ever won the World Series. No Padre had ever hit for the cycle… until now.

Matt Kemp hit a fly ball that ricocheted off the right center field wall in Coors Field. By the time he stood at third base, the cycle was achieved.

This has been a rough year for the Padres and for Kemp, but this hit must have felt sweet.

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

Adrian Beltre with the Tri Cycle.

The Rangers third baseman, who is quietly assembling a Hall of Fame resume, joined Bob Meusel, Babe Herman and Long John Reilly in the exclusive “Three Cycles in a Career” club.

OK, it isn’t quite Bonds, Aaron, Ruth, Mays… but it is kind of cool.

Bad news for Shin-Soo Choo who didn’t even last 3 weeks on this list!

Meanwhile Beltre is on here twice as the most recent cycle for the Rangers and the Mariners.

First Texas cycle in 2 years!

Lots of people hit their cycles in Colorado. Choo is the latest. In fact his teammate Delino DeShields almost joined him if only he could have connected for a Coors homer himself.

Either way, it was safe to say that humidor or no humidor, it was a good night to hit in Colorado (except for the Rockies who were shutout, 9-0.

The First Cycle Hit for 2015!

With all the great hitters in baseball, naturally it is BROCK HOLT of the Red Sox who gets a single, double, triple and homer. Granted, I am not thrilled that he wears Wade Boggs’ number 26, but this is a day to celebrate.

Good bye John Valentin, no longer on this list.

I have compiled a list of the most current no hitter for each franchise, but here is the companion list for the cycle. Is it harder to hit for the cycle? Probably. But Holt did it!

Here is the list, updated for today’s action!

The Most Recent Cycle Hit For Each Team

Why doesn’t hitting for the Cycle get the same love as throwing a no hitter?

Seriously, hitting for the cycle is just about as uncommon as a no hitter. Only 305 cycles have been hit, as opposed to 287 no hitters.

Getting the perfect combination of a single, double, triple and homer requires skill, consistency and an obscene amount of luck.

Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Barry Bonds and Willie Mays never did it once.

Michael Cuddyer, Chris Speier and Brad Wilkerson did it twice.

There has never been a cycle hit in the post season, as opposed to a pair of October no-no’s (Don Larsen and Roy Halladay.)

The Marlins have never had a player hit for the cycle. Neither have the Padres, who also have never had a no hitter.

So while I carefully update the list of the most current no hitter for each franchise, I have neglected to do the same for players who hit for the cycle… until now.

The pic is of the last cycle, hit by Michael Cuddyer, who has done so in both leagues (along with Bob Watson and John Olerud.)

Some of the teams have waited a while for an update. Eric Davis’ cycle in 1989 remains the last time it happened for Cincinnati. The Expos (2003) have had one more recently than the Red Sox (1996.)

Here is the list, to be updated when the next cycle is hit!
