I read somewhere that Austin Riley's K rate is over 40%.

Do we think they might try to alter his swing at all over the All Star break like they did Acuna last year?

I don't think his problem is swing. It's just plate discipline. That being said, he's always had big strikeout numbers in the minors. He's a guy who's gonna swing and miss a lot. I think its something we're gonna have to get used to with him. He's just got to get it to below 30%.

I don't think it's a swing problem necessarily. He's having a hard time identifying major league sliders, they're thrown with much more deception up here. He'll make the adjustments.

I didn't think Acuna's was a swing issue either. I thought they did it so he could wait longer to identify the offspeed but have enough time to react to the fastball.
