It seems like it was so long ago when we were talking about Colby Rasmus as a future fantasy stud. It’s now been two disappointing seasons so what do we make of him? He was a top prospect who once had a season in Double-A where he hit .275/.381/.551 with 29 homers and 18 steals, and in his 2010 sophomore campaign in the Majors he put up a .276/.361/.498 slash with 23 homers and 12 steals.
Well, in his other three MLB seasons, Rasmus has combined to hit .232 with 53 HR and 12 SB. The biggest difference between his successful seasons and his unsuccessful ones is his BABIP. In 2010, he posted a career high .354 BABIP, while the other three years it has averaged .269.
