Colby really struggling in AAA. Has anybody been following his games closely? I see he has only a 2% LD rate! Wondering if there other explanations for his slow start...

It's probably just the transition from AA to AAA. He has 5 HRs, has walked as many times as he's Ked, and has a BABIP of .218. The numbers suggest he'll turn around.

Yeah, I saw the BABIP. But his LD% of 2 (and GB% of 40) suggests that he's not hitting the ball hard, meaning his low BA is not due to poor luck.

I hope CR turns it around soon. I was really looking forward to seeing him in the bigs this year.

I heard that he is a slow starter also.

Yeah, good point. I think as long as the K/BB rate stays solid we should remain optimistic. I own him in one of my keeper leagues so I'm always hoping to see him called up.

He's working on hitting the ball the other way. I'm not worried at all.
