Michael Young is hitting at an uncharacteristically low clip of .213 for the month of May and he’s just five for his last 30 at the plate, but he doesn’t believe he’s in a slump. Because Young doesn’t really believe in the concept of “slumping.”
"I've never really bought into the idea of slumps," he said, per ESPN Dallas. "There are going to be times you just don't get the results that you want in this game. It's just the nature of the big leagues. But what you've done in the past has nothing to do with what you're going to do the next game. You're allowed to wipe the slate clean and get back to work the next game."
Despite what the results have shown over the past couple of weeks, Young says he feels good at the plate and is ready to get another crack at it against Oakland tonight.
"All I look for is my next at-bat," Young said. "I make my adjustments pitch to pitch and at-bat to at-bat. I look forward to my next at-bat and expect things to go my way."
