5/23 Castro's streak

With Starlin Castro’s first inning single Sunday, he now has now reached base safely in his first 16 games by either a hit, walk or error. According to Baseball Reference, the longest streak by a player to start his career since 1952 was 47 games, set by Alvin Davis in 1984 with Seattle. Castro is tied for 15th with three others, including current White Sox outfielder Juan Pierre.
