For the most part he doesn't have to worry about hitting. But it is an aspect of his game that if he could become good at would significantly help his pitching and win loss record. How many wins do you think Greg Maddox got because of hes ability with the bat in his hands. When Roger Clemens came to the NL he made sure that he would be able to hand the bat. Bailey does need to feel comfortabe with that bat in his hands.
