Yep, I agree. I think he would be facing these same problems no matter where he batted in the lineup. He's just been striking out more and he keeps swinging at bad low offspeed pitches. Teams have been scouting him and figuring out his weaknesses. Once he cuts down on that and forces pitchers to throw stuff over the plate (more frequently), he will start raking again.
