Carlos Correa is bailing on pitches down the middle far too often

Every time Carlos Correa gets fooled by a pitch that bends right back over the middle of the plate, it’s going right here. If you watch him with any regularity, it’s his approach that is hurting him. He’s far too content to try to hit everything to right field. Often on the first pitch down the middle you see him almost bail out of the box on a breaking ball and take the first strike down the heart of the plate or takes a first pitch down the middle and shoots it into the stands in right. One of the few guys in baseball we would like to see become more pull-happy. And this isn’t something where you can really stat a guy, you just see it. So when we see it, it’s going here.
