Re: Ronnie Ortegon interview
Nice stuff, 72.
-- Hamilton's slowed himself down, seen more pitches, and embraced a two-strike approach. Can hit from both sides of the plate with a good swing improved from last season. "A good old kid."
-- Barnhart's really understanding his swing. More ABs mean more confidence. Mental issues more than physical. RH swing needed work.
-- Henry Rodriguez can hit from both sides of the plate. Really improved defensively. Lot better understanding of the strike zone. Can adjust his approach as per his spot in the lineup. One of the better Red hitters in the pipeline.
-- Winker's a hitter. Confident but not arrogant. Trying to refine his batting practice approach. Compared him to Jay Bruce with swing/ leg kick.
