Do you have any kind of information to back this up, or is this just speculation?
Everything in fantasy baseball is speculation. But, he has not hit while the other guys have started to hit better.
But, here are Burrell's numbers through May of last year:
Ugly, to be sure. BUT, they are much better than Huff's numbers this year.
Bottom line: You shouldn't trust young hitters with poor plate discipline. People waited for Richard Hidalgo to get better. It took him two years to figure out how to hit major league pitching once they found the hole in his swing. Huff doesn't know how to work a count yet, and it's showing.
