Andruw Jones Is Struggiling Big Time

Recommended Posts

After going with a big 0-5, 5 K performance yesterday; Jones is currently sporting the following overall splits:

 

.212/.333/.397/.730

 

51 SO

26 BB

 

6 HR

30 RBI

 

The RBI total is pretty surprising/impressive considering how poorly he has hit.

 

He has been downright awful in May:

 

.147/.227/.221/.448

 

25 SO

7 BB

 

1 HR

11 RBI

 

I hope he gets on track and he more than less will with a ton of season left, but yesterday was the worst I think I've ever seen him. He had no clue where the ball was at all day.

andruw jones seems to have this habit of not going to the dl and playing hurt, so him going to the dl is unlikely unless it gets worse. but his problem is actually because his swing is TERRIBLE right now. he's always having home run cuts or weak swings and his batting stance is awful. alot of braves fans are getting tired of him, especially with his comments earlier in the year. expect boos tuesday night (game is on tbs).

Well, his bad swing can probably be attributed to his bad back. I've never been an Andruw Jones fan, but he is too good of a player to stay in a funk like this for long.

i disagree...offensively...for his potential when he came up...he has always been in a funk...he tries to hit mickey mantle sized moon shots every time up...which is why his career average is around what? .270...this is nothing new from him...if his defense slumped, then id be worried

I don't think Andruw Jones ever truly met expectations offensively.

And yet he'll probably still retire with 500-600 HR.

 

He's not going to put up a platinum sombrero every night, but Hollywood K's a lot. He's always had issues with low pitches anyways.

Fair enough. The weird thing about Andruw is that he'll K 120 times in a season but he'll also drive in 130 runs and score 100 more. As JimmyJack pointed out, he's really in there for his stellar D [even if he's a bit of a hotdog] and who knows how many runs he saves in the OF with his leather. I think he's one of those guys like Soriano who got rushed through the minors and was expected to compete at the ML level too quickly instead of being developed in AA or AAA ball. These guys are getting along on raw talent alone.

 

I still say he comes out of this and finishes the season with a .260/.270 avg.
