Angels catcher Chris Iannetta in 2014 had his best overall season with the club. He hit .252 with seven home runs, 43 RBIs, 22 doubles and an on-base-percentage of .373 in 306 at-bats.
It’s been a different story here in 2015, his fourth season with the Angels. This season he’s hitting just .184 with three home runs and 15 RBIs in 141 at-bats. He has four doubles and an on-base-percentage of just .287, the lowest of his 10-year major-league career.
He said it’s not as bad as all that.
“Yeah, I had a really bad April,” Iannetta said. “Since then, I’ve been playing really well, to be honest with you. I think if you look at the numbers since May, it’s been what I did all last year.
“I just had an abysmal April. And it’s still reflected on the scoreboard. Since then I think I’ve been hitting roughly around .250 and doing pretty well, doing what I want to do. It’s going to take a long time to change the overall aggregate number on the scoreboard, but I like where I’m at.”
Iannetta hit just .093 in April and he did come back to hit .264 in May. However, he’s hitting just .206 this month. He’s hitting .241 (21-for-87) since the end of April.
