Small sample size.

A season is not defined by 33 ABs.

Career .265 hitters will go through 4 for 33 slumps from time to time.  That's it.

i've had lots of players go thru 'off seasons' like that. dont expect much til next season. he'll probably be back on track by then. if he straightens out before then, count your blessings.

Thanks, I'm more concerned with the tough start to this season in light of last season's .237/.305/.419 numbers....

S25 is closer to what he is than any of the other seasons.   I'd expect around 270/340/450 or so from him.

I'ld expect 290-350-480...Which is almost exactly what he did 2 seasons ago, and the year before that.  last year is his aberration year.  This year is just a small sample.  He'll recover.

Patience......It is what I have had to learn. He is a good enough hitter, so there is no doubt he will come around. I have also had to learn that I place too high of expectations on my players. That being said, I think what moe laid out for you is what you should expect. I had a guy with similar ratings bat around .240 for the better part of two seasons. He finished each season on a tear to make his stats look better. I am willing to bet your guy will make up for it sooner rather than later and you can probably expect more consistency down the road.

.280/.345/.480 is what I got him at. It's early in the season.
