Is Delmon Young About to Break Out? | Community – FanGraphs Baseball:
"What’s hurting Young right now is a .247 BABIP, which is helping drive his .250 batting average. In ‘07, ‘08, and ‘09 he posted a .338 BABIP and his career BABIP, over almost 2,000 at-bats, is .334, so we have a decent idea of what his BABIP could rebound to. Once Young, a career .288 hitter, sees his BABIP rebound, he could see his some of his progress start to pay off."
