And it's official...

Kris Negron was put on the DL, and Didi Gregorius is now a Louisville Bat. That means he's the starting SS, and Janish is a utility infielder. He's starting at 2B tonight. had this to say about Janish:

Paul Janish is one of the Bats who has been blatantly plagued by the injury bug this season. After hitting .315 with seven doubles, one triple, two homers, and four RBIs in 23 April games, Janish suffered a broken wrist and spent the entire month of May on the disabled list. Since being activated June 14 (43 days on DL), Janish is hitting just .170 (15-for-88) with five doubles, two homers, and five RBIs. Janish enters the break with an overall batting average of .236 with just nine total RBIs. Hopefully, Janish can get back to his April form in the second half.

I wonder if the wrist injury is the reason for his struggles. Not sure what was broken, but some wrist injuries are known to sap hitters' power.

Though from what I've seen, he's been pretty unlucky lately. Balls that were falling in before are just caught, or just foul. Hopefully that will change.
