Since taking the day off for back spasms on April 15th, he’s gone 6-27 with 1 double and 15 strikeouts.

It could be just a slump with very odd timing…or could he be hurt? Anyone with a back problem can tell you that staying on the ball would be very difficult if your back was bothering you.

I have no idea what the problem is, but think the timing makes it worthy of discussing.
