Re: Will Billy Hamilton be moved to CF?
Because of how much he is out on his front foot flailing at a breaking ball. He steps too soon because he is reading fastball then had to try and wait, leading to him being way off balance and reaching. If he could read that pitch, he wouldn't step early and be reaching.
Stubbs swings through plenty of fastballs. It's not just a matter of pitch recognition -- he may be guessing at times (pitch or location), and he doesn't have the contact skills to compensate when he guesses wrong. He may also have a hole down and in.
