    Is this just a good streak early in the season or has BJ Szymanski turned the corner? He has a hit in all 9 AA games so far this year; 13 for 33 with 5 extra base hits & 1.109 OPS. However, his bb/k rate is a really high 0/13.

    Its good to see that Szymanski is hitting well, but its not going to continue if he keeps striking out 38% of the time he steps to the plate. That number is beyond ridiculous. He has been incredibly lucky with his balls in play falling in. Unless he cuts down on the strikeouts big time, he will struggle to hit .250.
