Lee's streak still 12 off Profar's season standard

Biscuits shortstop Hak-Ju Lee's 38-game on-base streak is the longest active streak with a U.S.-based affiliated league. It's also the longest this year in the Southern League.

There have been five longer streaks this season in all of baseball (majors and minors). Since Minor League Baseball started listing streaks with its league statistics in 2009, Lee is tied for the longest in the Southern League.
