You're right, he did start slow...but wasn't that due to injury? I can't remember for sure, but I think it was an injury he was battling.
Regardless, he's not really playing that poorly so far, he's just swung at a few bad pitches and seems to be pushing to hit HRs rather than just taking what the pitchers give him. I think this is something that he'll correct in the near future....he's too good of a player to slump like this for long. He's one of the best young power hitters in the game, he'll produce.
Good memory, forgot about that. He only had 29 AB in April last year. I think he was out last year for a while with a strained side muscle or something like that. But the bottom line is he will produce and have a good year.
