what is the deal with this guy this season?
i was expecting big numbers this season. he started the season in the 4 spot.
his current numbers are brutal..
.184 AVG/ .297 OBP/ .379 SLG/ .676 OPS/
he does have 3 HR and 14 RBI, and the power potential is there.
he strikes out alot, but his K rate is ridiculous at 44.8 % (09- 37.2%). his K rate in the minors was not that bad. 09AAA= 27.0 %/ 08AA= 18.0%/ 07A+= 21.1%/ 06A= 25.6%
he is walking, 11.9 % (09- 10.5%). allthough most of his walks are out of the 6 spot.
his AVG is bad (.184 AVG) but his BABIP isnt bad at .289 BABIP.
he has 16.7 LD% (09- 12.9%) but also only 39.6 FB% (09- 50.5%).
i didnt expect his AVG to be that bad, his career in the minor league line is..
.304 AVG/ .393 OBP/ .505 SLG/ .898 OPS/ in 451G/ 1662 AB.
anyone know anything about whats going on with him out in San Diego?
with all the OF the Padres have, is there a good chance he gets sent down to AAA?
