The A’s were expecting a lot of power out of 28-year old righty swinging 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff after they pried him away from the Padres and Petco Park in a trade over the winter. But he is not hitting the ball well at all for the A’s so far this season. He has played in 41 games for the A’s this season and he is 42 of 163 (.258 avg, .641 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 3 homers and 21 RBIs. Kouzmanoff is also showing a alarming lack of discipline at the dish with 28 whiffs and only 5 walks. The lack of discipline probably concerns A’s G.M. Billy Beane as it’s not the “Moneyball” way of playing offense in baseball.
