Colby Rasmus has been a different hitter on the road than at home in 2015. Through 17 games, he is batting .067 (1-for-15) with no home runs or RBI at home, while he is batting .350 (14-for-40) with one triple, three doubles, three home runs and seven RBI on the road.

It's difficult to pinpoint exactly why Rasmus seems to be struggling so much in his new home, especially when Minute Maid Park favors the hitters. Perhaps it's the batter's eye in center field and the way he's picking up the ball out of the pitcher's hand, but there is really no empirical evidence as to why his splits look this bad. Your best bet is to find him a platoon partner on your roster and sit him during homestands until he figures things out.  Analysis: Howard Bender
