There could be a million reasons why what's going on is going on. Any ideas out there?
This isn't an April/May slump anymore.
Last year was a Mid-Season All-Star Centerfielder for Chattanooga in the Southern League where he batted .295/.381/.455/.836 in 300+ Plate Appearances. He was promoted to Louisville, and started off well there if I remember correctly before finishing .274/.320/.381/.701.
OBTAINED: Acquired by Reds from Tampa Bay along with IF Jorge Cantu in exchange for RHP Calvin Medlock and LHP Brian Shackelford on 7/28/07.
In 2007 with Chattanooga he hit .301/.355/.407/.762.
This year he's having a Taveras-esque season so far: .202/.295/.281/.576.
He turns 25 August 1st, but this dramatic decline is disturbing.
