I'd like to pick up someone to replace him. The ABs just aren't there, and when they are, he is not being productive with them. As I said, I'd like to replace him, but even in my ten-team, one-catcher league, there doesn't seem to be any good candidates.
Any idea what the story with him is? I mean seriously, based on his previous production you'd think he'd be doing fine with a potential for lots better. He's been yanked around with playing time in the past so it can't be that. Maybe he doesn't like moving around or DHing.
LD% is way down, but K% is down, BB% is up. That's good isn't it? Actually it may not be. It looks like his swing rate is down. He may be walking more because he's not swinging?
To me based on the numbers and only seeing him for a few games in town, he's not being aggressive, and just needs to get his head straightened out. IMO still has possibilities this year unless you think he's fallen of the ledge. As for playing time, I think he's had the chances and not taken advantage so he may have missed the boat. That's the biggest concern. He could play his way back.
