Lance Berkman is batting .162. Should Astros fans be worried about him?
In a word, no. He’s still drawing walks, he’s hit five home runs. His line-drive percentage is a little down, and his fly-ball percentage is a little up. I interpret this to mean he’s getting under the ball a tiny bit, which is a problem solved by adjustments. This is just a slow start that’s magnified because it’s all the statistics he has this year.
