I've seen Utley play a lot this year and he does generate exceptional power for such a short compact swing. The problem I have with him is I see him as very much a one dimensional hitter.
Every HR he has hit this year without exception has been a line drive to right field or centre/right field.
He hits nothing the opposite way at all. Nothing wrong with that if you can do it consistently but he can't.
His first 122 AB's this season he hits 13 HR's with a .369 BA
He then hit just 1 HR in his next 72 AB's with a .200 BA
Then he goes on another tear. 7 Hr's in 8 games to give him 21 for the year on June 2nd
Since then he has been stone cold. .190 BA and just the 1 dinger
Roto no problem at all but H2H a potential killer.
Anyone that traded for this guy in early June in any league format must be close to slitting their wrists.
