15 Worst players to use in Beat the Streak for July 2014

Travis Snider, worst player for Beat the Streak in July 2014

Travis Snider tops the list of players to not use for Beat the Streak. Currently he has 43 games without a hit. Since he’s played in 74 games this year, that means he’s gotten a hit in 42% of his games (that percentage is lowest so far in 2014).

Not only does his .226 batting average hurt his Beat the Streak chances, he’s also pinch-hit in 41 games. Pinch hitting usually means only one at bat for the game. In fact, he is averaging 2.014 at bats per game (4th lowest in MLB this year).

Other than Travis Snider, here are the other 14 players to not use in Beat the Streak. It’s sad for me to see two Chicago Cubs on this list, Nate Schierholtz and Mike Olt.
