Cats' Bobby Dalbec struggling in first nine games

UA junior Bobby Dalbec, projected as a first-round pick in June’s MLB draft, is struggling mightily through nine games. He was hitting .147 after Friday’s loss to Northwestern State and had not hit a home run; he led the Pac-12 with 15 homers a year ago. Dalbec struck out five times in a game against Tulane last week and has been dropped to sixth in Jay Johnson’s batting order.
