Garret Anderson's career likely came to a close in 2010 when the Dodgers designated him for assignment. His last good season came in 2008. He hit the ball wherever it was pitched:
Garret could hit balls right down the middle, but his hot zones extended well out of the strike zone in all directions. In 2009, he lost the middle and could only handle pitches in side or high.
His batting average dropped from .293 to .268. In 2010 things got worse.
Garret totally lost the inside and middle of the plate. He had to dive well out of the zone to get hits, and his batting average dropped to .181. The classic bad ball hitter lost his ability to hit pitches in the strike zone, and ended a long career.
