And what makes anyone think he'll get better in the near future then? I mean I realize he won't continue hitting .100, but it's not like he's suddenly going to start hitting like he did after years of experience in the NL East. It could take all season for him to really start feeling comfortable. Combine that with a weak shoulder that we've been hearing about for a few weeks and I am really not optimistic about a solid season. Decent maybe, but nothing like most people were expecting when they drafted him.
He is changing leagues, which means new pitchers and a new team, so sure he is going to struggle early. Tack on any shoulder issues, and what you are seeing is what a career .255 hitter, who has K'ed 150 times every season, looks like when he struggles.
were you guys expecting a .300 hitter here or something, just cus he moved to Arlington?
