Tweaked swing could lead to roster spot for Tony Gwynn Jr.
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Tony Gwynn Jr. teammed up with Triple-A hitting coach Joe Dillon and Nationals hitting coach Rick Schu to tweak his swing, which could result in an Opening Day roster spot, according to the Washington Post. Gwynn's body wasn't in sync when he swung, and he fixed it by using his backside to generate more power in his swing.
"The swing works from the ground up," Gwynn said. "Having my lower half really incorporated into my swing and getting through baseballs better has helped. That's why I've been able to get a lot of hits where I don't necessarily square it up where my hip beats me a little bit or something but they're on a line and I'm able to get my backside through things which I don't think I've been doing for a while."
Nationals outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. has chance to make final roster
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/9/15) Nationals outfielder Tony Gwynn may have fallen into a chance to making the team's final roster, reports MLB.com.
Veteran outfielder Denard Span is expected to be out past opening day, leaving an open spot in the Nationals' outfield. For Gywnn, it's just another chance to show what he can do.
"I'm making some strides," Gwynn said. "We have some coaches who are familiar with my swing. I played for Joe Dillon when I was a young guy in 2007 and '08 [for the Brewers]. He is familiar with what I'm doing. Schu has been great. Having those guys tag team accelerated the process as far as getting where I need to be."
Gwynn said his struggles in 2014 were in part because of his father, Tony Gwynn, battling with salivary cancer.
"I was dealing with that, plus getting sporadic at-bats and things of that nature makes it more difficult. Baseball is tough enough by itself," Gwynn said. "When you have other things playing in different directions, it makes it hard."
