It’s the end of the second week of the 2010 Major League Baseball season. Production this week was near empty for these sluggers. Each of them is desperately trying to find a repair man for their mechanics.
1) OF Colby Rasmus Stl
The Cardinal outfielder has been suffering being hitless at the last fifteen plate appearances. He could only provide a single walk to help his team this week.
Rasmus had a .000 AVG this past week which dropped his season total to .179 AVG.
He is now batting eighth in the line-up after starting the season in the fifth position.
2) OF Matt Holliday Stl
Holliday has only been able to scrape up one hit in the last twenty-one tries. The sole hit was a homerun but that wasn’t enough to save his week.
Holliday missed some games late this week due to illness which may have been a factor in his poor production.
3) Mark Teixeira
Teixeira continued his slump hitting only one base hit with twenty at-bats this week. The Yankees first baseman is now four for forty to start the season.
Teixeira is hitting only .100 so far making this season. April has never been kind to the Yankees slugger. Teixeira may be a staple on the Major Slump Report for the next few weeks.
4) OF Chris Coghlan Fla
Coghlan is hitless in nineteen at-bats giving him the horror of a .000 AVG this week. The Marlins outfielder will drop to the two spot behind Cameron Maybin.
5) Carlos Lee
Reynolds managed to only dredge up two hits this week with twenty-five plate appearances. He is dragging around a pitiful .104 AVG with only one RBI.
This is Carlos Lee’s second straight week on the Major Slump Report.
6) OF Carlos Quentin CWS
Quentin is hitting .111 and was three for twenty seven. The only light for the Chicago White Sox outfielder is his grand slam on Wednesday.
7) OF Raul Ibanez Phi
Ibanez is depressing with a .059 AVG garnering only one hit in the last seventeen at-bats. He had an issue with his elbow during the spring which might be affecting his swing.
8) SS Edgar Renteria
There are hopes that Renteria may have a decent year after such a hot start. Those thoughts may be dwindling with his .125 AVG this week. San Francisco felt the chill of only three hits in the last twenty-four at-bats.
Renteria was 0-5 in Friday’s game and saw his .600 plus batting average take a dive. For those who grabbed him for your fantasy team during his hot streak, let’s hope that he can turn it around.
9) SS Jason Bartlett TB
Bartlett had a torturous week with only two hits in twenty-three attempts in the box. He is hitting .087 AVG for a bad string of at-bats.
10) OF, DH Julio Borbon Tex
Julio Borbon road the pine a few games this week. David Murphy has been getting some playing time due to Borbon’s slump.
The Texas outfielder only managed two hits in the fifteen at-bats he got between the bench and the field. Borbon makes the list of “bad” for the second week straight.
