Hopefully he was careful and kept his strength up. I'd hate to see him lose some power.
I agree. It doesn't prove much and may just be a coincidence, but I remember one season when Dmitri Young came in much slimmer and couldn't hit the ball out of the IF. Around the All Star break he was his old stocky self and his bat came alive.
I'm thrilled that Yonder has lost some weight, but I have the same concern that you do. Lets hope he hasn't lost much strength/bat speed as a result.
