They are just conserving energy by avoiding unnecessary base running.  Strategic thinking.   

swinging at strikes might inadvertently lead to contact, which can risk injuries sliding. heck, we've seen Harper and others injured around the bases. Better to play it safe and just swing at unhittable pitches.
