Where is his power at??
At the end of May last year, he had 14 HRs. Granted, his BA stunk, but his power was there...
This year he's got 4 HR's, and they were all in April. What's wrong??
Looking at his FB% of 38.4%, it's not far off of what he did in limited play two years ago, and his line drive rate of 24.3% is actually quite good for him. His average is solid, and his BABIP isn't ridiculous... He's hitting fine, he's just not hitting HR's.
Given his numbers, things should even out and he should be fine, but he hasn't hit a HR since April 29th, and it's starting to concern me a bit. Does anyone in the Cincinnati area that's able to watch him play notice anything different about his swing or power this year?
