reached the 3,000-hit milestone on May 4, 2018, poking a soft line drive to right field against the Seattle Mariners. With the broken-bat single, the native of the Dominican Republic became just the fourth major leaguer with at least 3,000 hits and 600 home runs, joining Hank Aaron, Álex Rodríguez, and Willie Mays in the exclusive group. The Angels slugger followed Japanese-born Ichiro Suzuki (2016) and fellow Dominican Adrián Beltré (2017) to become the third straight foreign-born member of the 3,000-Hit Club.
