"He's off to a hot start. You're going to be eating crow," the people say.
"Watch this and tell me he's begun to answer questions about his strike zone judgment," I reply.
This at-bat is from the 4th inning of April 15th's game against the Bakersfield Blaze. Villalona was facing Zachary Phillips (17.7% K in A" last season; 661 TBF). In fairness to Villalona, Phillips struck out the side swinging in this inning (Roger Kischnick swinging; and Conor Gillaspie swinging -- also on a wild pitch). So Phillips may just be a breakout reliever.
