Mitch Maier doesn't play very much. And when you don't play very much, and aren't that great, and happen to be in a slump, well...
Mitch Maier's last base hit was on May 26th. Since then, he's hit .000/.077/.000.
Of course, although we're nearly a month removed from MITCH's last hit, we're only talking about 14 PAs here. This is the number of chances at the plate Francoeur is given by falling out of bed in the morning. So, it's only been 14 PAs spread out over 12 games, but it's been ugly.
Still, an .077 OBP is a pretty good way to get the management team's attention. He'll be leading off soon.
