Jesus Christ; it's kind of amazing how terrible he was in April last season. What in the world.

Just a hunch but I don’t think he’ll maintain a .159 BABIP all year.

Saw that earlier when I looked up Rizzo’s and it was too depressing to post.

I'm confused...it's 55 points lower than his career average? While hitting essentially the same amount of hard hit balls? I mean...if you want to buy that he's a 10 HR/year guy now, then sure, let's get concerned. But I'm pretty far from there.

Me too.

I'm thinking 3 HR.

So it has now been a full month since Rizzo last hit a HR and going all the back to June 1st his SLG is .438. I know the OBP is still there, but I'm starting to get a bit worried here.

I'm not...Riz has been a notoriously streaky hitter in his career.

In April of last year he hit 1 HR in 18 games with a sub-.500 OPS and then immediately hit 5 in his next 9 games. Then later in June/July he had a 25 game homerless stretch, and also followed that up with a 5 HR in 9 game stretch. He then had a 25 game homerless stretch to end the season (though hit one in the tiebreaker game).

In 2017 he had a 13 game stretch, a 1 HR in 22 game stretch, and then hit 1 HR in his final 27 games.

2016, a 1 HR in 23 games stretch, 1 HR in 35 game stretch, and finished the year with a 14 game homerless stretch (that led into a postseason slump that he broke out of mid-NLCS and finished the championship run strong).

Not to say that this will make you feel warm and fuzzy about Rizzo, but that's just who he is. You always wonder in the middle of those HR hot streaks he has why he's never hit more than 32 in a season...well that's why. At some point in the very near future, he will break out of it and hit like 5 HRs in 9 games and all will be good.
