A k rate that high with no power to speak of, that isn't good.
Basically though, what I am saying is that Hamilton isn't really showing off some kind of contact rate that we haven't seen from him before. He was better, albeit by an insanely small amount, in Billings, than he has been at any other level.
If you lower the threshold to 300 PA's this year, 18% would rank you 114th in baseball.
