Jeff Kent Stats

Jeff Kent was born on Thursday, March 7, 1968, in Bellflower, California. Kent was 24 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 12, 1992, with the Toronto Blue Jays. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Jeff Kent baseball stats page.

"Jeff Kent is one of our leaders on our team. Jeff Kent carries himself very professionally. Jeff Kent is an outstanding hitter. I think Jeff Kent and myself complement each other very well. If one's not doing it, the other wants to do it. If one's doing it, the other one wants to do better. I think that's outstanding. Michael Jordan had Scottie Pippen, Magic Johnson had Kareem. There's always got to be somebody to help that other person, one, become a better player or challenge themselves, and Jeff Kent challenges me a lot in how I perform. And I try to challenge him as much as I can for his performance. I think we complement each other very, very well." - Barry Bonds (Workout Day Press Conference, 10/18/2002)
