I’ve learned over the years not to put too much stock into the ups and downs of a player in the minors and instead focus on the mechanics of the player.
That swing and his body mechanics are as compact as it gets so I have confidence that long term he’ll have no issues with the bat. The more compact the swing and mechanics, the deeper you can allow the pitch to travel which should help with pitch recognition in the big leagues. Typically the inability to lay off high fastballs and breaking balls out of the zone is what makes a rookie “struggle” when they come up so as long as he can improve that part of his game he’s good. Plus remember two things; we don’t know if they’ve specifically told him to swing at only breaking pitches when possible to work on a specific part of his game, and he’s gone through two tweaks of his swing recently so there’s always that adjustment period. I believe in him long term
Funny you say that, every time I go to Marlins Park I can’t help but feel that it affects our players mentally to play there which leads to them trying to hard to hit it out of a big stadium with “dead” air most nights. They seem to hit well everywhere but there 🤷🏻♂️
