He absolutely rocks righties... and although improving against lefties he'll still get an occasional breather.
Off the DL, guys were pitching him inside, which he absolutely crushes. Word got out quickly, and since then pitchers have been working him away consistantly, which he struggles with. I'm not sure if his adjustment will come quickly or slowly, but he'll eventually get there.
In the meantime, hopefully the Tigers bats stay hot and he keeps getting strikes to hit.
