Notes: This biggest question surrounding Arencibia headed into 2011 was whether he could cut down on his strikeouts.  Well, he hasn’t.  Although his power is still there — 24 of his 50 hits have gone for extra bases — the Blue Jay backstop has struck out 66 times in 232 at-bats and currently sports a slash line of .216/.271/.435.
