    Cincinnati Reds links - Nick Senzel, Joey Votto among Reds reporting early to spring training
    Monday links!
    Senzel is not only in Goodyear early, he’s taking hacks in batting practice and looks plenty healthy doing so.

    Nick Senzel appears to be coming along nicely after shoulder surgery.#Reds #MLB #SpringTraining https://www.instagram.com/p/B8ZTLueB...d=gmuctf7h6pts

    Once you get beyond just being ecstatic to see taking healthy rips (and file the new arm tats to memory), what becomes apparent is that Senzel sure does appear to be approaching each swing the way he did early in the 2019 season - with the swing he’s used for most of his entire life. Senzel infamously tried out a more upright batting stance mid-season last year to frustrating results, and had just returned to his old stance before the shoulder issues ended his season prematurely. Considering his desire to go back to the old way and that both Turner Ward and Donnie Ecker - last season’s hitting coaches/gurus - have since left the Reds altogether, this would certainly appear to suggest that the tinkering with the Reds brightest young position player has been halted. For now, at least.


    On a related note, Joey Votto is in camp early, too, as Day also relayed. And while Senzel appears to have turned back to the approach that made him such a highly touted prospect in the first place, one look at Votto shows that the swing adjustment he put in place mid-year in 2019 is still around, as he’s not crouched and choking up on the bat the way he had for so many amazing seasons. Votto stood more upright with his hands back to the knob for the final few months of 2019 to decent results, and it should, in theory, help give him the kind of additional leverage that might allow for his power to return a bit. At age 36, any marginal improvement in that area is certainly worth pursuing, as Votto certainly knows, and getting any glimpse into the thought process of one of baseball’s most introspective stars is always fun to see play out.

    Jesse Winker and Travis Jankowski are in camp early as well, which is a good indication that they’re all well aware of the competition it’s going to take to earn regular OF playing time from day one.

    There are so many storylines to follow this year. Outside of the bullpen and bench battles, it’s just going to be fun getting to know Akiyama, Moustakas, Castellanos, and Miley this spring.
