Can you explain BAPIP? Batting average on balls in play, right? How does it work?
It's basically what it says it is--of the number of times someone put the ball in play (that is, at-bats minus home runs minus strikeouts), how many times did it turn into a hit? A really high BABIP usually means a hitter's getting lucky.
He was expected to be adequate with a bit of pop. Not horrendous like this
Yeah, the lack of pop is concerning. It makes me think there may be something to the theory people are tossing around that he's playing hurt.
