Starlin Castro is 1-for-17 on the homestand.
It’s not a frightening stretch by slump standards, but still very unusual for Castro.
Since making his MLB debut in 2010, Castro’s 423 hits are the most in the National League, including his NL leading 207 hits last season.
Castro also has the most multi-hit games (82) in the NL since the beginning of 2011, including (25) multi-hit efforts this season.
So it’s strange to see a guys who just hits, and then hits some more, struggle offensively.
But since the start of June Castro is hitting a paltry .203/.230/.339. He’s driven in but 2 runs and has 16 strikeouts vs. one walk. What gives?
