Yeah, poor phrasing on my part. I think his batting average so far is almost entirely bad luck. Barrel rate is great, ld% was the last time I checked. And his approach is obviously great. We're entirely in agreement.I don't agree on Casas not making adjustments. His swing looks much different this year than last. He young and struggling with the learning curve. Just give him time. He has the tools to succeed at this level.
Anyway, hoping Pivetta gets bumped to the pen after Paxton has a good start. The guy is just not good. He's had success as a reliever and one more reliable big-leaguer reliever would go a long ways. And if someone goes down in the next couple weeks he'll still be stretched out.
