Jimmy Rollins often gets off to slow starts, but his first month with the Los Angeles Dodgers has been a rough one.
His .260 career average in April is the lowest of any month, but Rollins admitted his .186 mark through 70 at-bats in 2015 represents a slower start than usual.
"Well, some people like to panic. That has never been my MO," he said. "I have, what, 50, 60 at-bats, I'm not sure. So if these are my worst 50 at-bats this year -- I'm glad they're happening now. (If they are his worst at-bats) it's going to be a very good year."
Rollins doesn't actually think the quality of his at-bats has been that poor.
"It's hard to compute if you just look at numbers," he said. "I'm getting myself in good counts, just not finishing it off. I know it's coming. I'm hitting some off the end, some are getting in just a little bit. But the swing path is right. It's just a click here, a click there.
"The process is good. You have to continue to trust in the process and believe in the process. You get oriented in just results -- especially at times like this -- then you're trying to make all these technical changes and that's when you go from one to two to 100. So the process is right. Executing it is about fine-tuning."
