His bb/k ratio isn't bad, and has improved from last year, so I assume he's seeing the ball at least OK. His minor league numbers were great. BABIP hasn't taken a big hit. What gives here? Is his swing different? Is he bigger/smaller? Just a young player in a cold streak? Any other thoughts?
Confidence is an issue at this point, from all accounts. Add in the fact that pitchers have made their adjustments and its time for Butler to make his back....
Power was always going to take a couple years for him to develop so while 1 home run is suprising I would have been suprised also if he had more than 6 at this point too.
He's a young kid....not every great prospect hits the bigs running.
Anyway, nothing seems different....he just needs to get his confidence back and to make the neccessary adjustments that seem to have been made against him.
