Everyone saw Alex Rodriguez get off to a slow start in May, but what he is doing in June is even worse. I suggested before that Kate Hudson could be causing the hitting drought, but that’s highly unlikely. The only other thing I can think of is that his hip is still bothering him.
Here are his batting numbers by month:
Of his 28 hits this season, nine have landed over the fence – eight of which in his new home in New York. Even with the eight homers at home, he’s still hitting far worse than in road games. His day/night numbers are even more weird: .318 vs. .179, respectively These are some very quirky splits for a normally very consistent player.
It’s impossible to tell what is troubling him based on the numbers, so I feel he is hiding something from the media and/or the team.
He’s a career .305 hitter. He will not finish the season below .250.
