Biographical Information[edit]

Jason Bartlett padres.jpg

Jason Bartlett was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 13th round of the 2001 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Lane Decker and made his pro debut that summer.

Although Bartlett is known first for his defensive prowess at shortstop, he tied a San Diego Padres team record in May of 2011 by driving in a run in 9 consecutive games. That matched streaks by Sixto Lezcano in 1982 and Steve Finley in 1996. It was doubly surprising as Bartlett is not really a run producer, and as the Padres' offense was sputtering at the time.

Bartlett's wife Kelly is the daughter of Tony Chevez, who pitched four games for the 1977 Baltimore Orioles.
