Cornbread, (to answer the original post)
Victor Martinez will be fine. He's just having a bit of bad luck. This accounts for the drop in batting average.
He's hitting .229 on balls in play. Compare that to Brandon Inge who is hitting .398 on balls in play. Neither of those numbers are going to last. Victor's will go up, Inge's will go down.
He has a good Line Drive % (.192), so he's making solid contact with the ball. Expect the batting average, RBI #s and Runs to rise substantially by the end of May/early June. His K/BB ratio is right where it should be, so he's seeing the ball well (or at least as well as he did last year).
As far as his power...nobody knows where that went.
Right now, he's on pace to hit 12 HRs this year. That could just be a result of trying too hard to bust out of his slump. Who knows? Let's just hope the power comes back with his batting average. I personally think it will, and he'll end up with 20-25 HRs at the end of the season.
