Unfortunately, I think some of the comments the FO has made makes me feel like there is something in his play they are somewhat concerned about.
Which comments are you referring to here?
Im too lazy to dig them up. One obvious one is the firing of Sveum due to regression of key core pieces. Obviously wasnt fired for Starlin alone, 99% sure they were implying Rizzo
Theo made some comments about him playing a cat and mouse game all year, and puzzling was how often he lost. Despite the walks, I think there is something in his approach they want to change
No one found it odd that Renteria said that they had to fix Rizzo's approach? Weird for a power hitter who walked 76 times and struck out like 120 times
Just going off memory but it did seem like Rizzo got himself into a lot of 2 strike counts. He swung at 5% less pitches last year but his K% went up (fangraphs) I think he obviously has the power to hit 30-40 HR but i think he was too passive last year
