Well, that took a while. Stanton had not hit a home run since May 24th while missing seven games due to injury as well as two games off. Stanton’s slump has been one of the big stories of the 2016 season as his batting average has hovered around the low .200’s and his power has dipped. His struggles have extended well past a standard slump but I still don’t believe there is reason to worry. Mike Trout started the season in a similar way to what Stanton is experiencing now and was able to turn it around in a big way. Stanton has proven that he has the ability to be one of the premier power hitters in the league and his struggles should come to an end soon.
