Odd Hidalgo story

I stumbled across a story on Richard Hidalgo by Jason Pugh, which touches on Hidalgo's early struggles, but seems to dismiss them as being "expected" because Hidalgo is playing in the A.L. for the first time.

I had thought that the notion of a hitter being expected to struggle because he's changed leagues had been debunked, but I guess not.

Hidalgo is also given points for fitting in to the Ranger clubhouse, which he praises as being "more relaxed" than the Astro clubhouse.
