Rick Ankiel is off to a very unusual start to the 2013 MLB season with the Houston Astros. In 31 plate appearances, he's struck out 21 times. That's worse than most pitchers when they bat...and remember he used to be a pitcher. However, he has connected 10 times and 6 of those times a base hit was the outcome. Of those 6 hits, 5 have gone for extra bases- 1 double and 4 homeruns. That's the ultimate hit or miss and all or nothing hitter right there. His batting average might only be .194, but his .806 OPS is very respectable.
