Most Recent Cycle Hit For Each MLB Franchise (Updated For Evan Longoria, August 1, 2017 )

Eric Christian Smith, AP

Upon further review… EVAN LONGORIA HAS THE CYCLE!

The Rays are staying in this American League playoff push and Evan Longoria is sparking a unexpectedly hot offense.

If they can keep this hitting up, then who knows? The last Ray to hit for the cycle was B. J. Upton, who is now Melvin Upton, Jr. That was so long ago, he was a different person!

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