Former hitting coach: David Ortiz can improve against LHP

(5/21/15) David Ortiz has been here before. Not too long ago, during the 2009 and '10 seasons, the Red Sox slugger endured huge struggles against left-handed pitchers.

Ortiz, who is currently hitting .136 against left-handed pitchers in 44 at-bats, rectified those issues a couple of years ago and his former hitting coach Dave Magadan believes he can do it again.

"If you remember, there was a clamoring of should we release him, is he done," the current Rangers hitting coach said. "There was a lot of talk about that. They were talking about his bat speed and all that. But I remember distinctly telling him, 'David, you take BP with guys throwing 50 mph. If you didn't have bat speed you couldn't hit balls where you do in BP and we're going to look back at this moment and we're going to laugh. We're going to use it to make you better down the line because this is going to make you a better hitter, a better player. As tough as you are, it’s going to make you tougher.' He ended up proving all the doubters wrong."

Ortiz will have to find a remedy against lefties much like he did five years ago.

"It was showing old video. Showing him what he did against left-handers, how he used the field,” Magadan said. "A lot of his troubles back then was that he was using half the field. And it was more trouble with the relievers than it was the starters. Lefty starters he was still getting his hits, but it was the guys coming out of the pen who are paid to get lefties out he had a little too much of a pull approach. Then it was when he started opening up the left side of the field is when he got going."

For the season, Ortiz is hitting .241/.340/.421 with six home runs and 16 RBI in 133 total at-bats.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz homers in his second straight game

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/19/15) Designated hitter David Ortiz hit his second home run in as many games Tuesday to help the Red Sox get past the Rangers.

Ortiz hadn't hit a homer since April 24 before connecting for one in each of his last two games.

David Ortiz out of Red Sox lineup on Sunday

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/17/15) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz will get a rest on Sunday. 

Ortiz was not in the starting lineup for the Sox. Hanley Ramirez moved to DH from left field to replace him. Brock Holt replaced Ramirez in left. 

Replacing Ortiz in the third spot in the order was second baseman Dustin Pedroia

Red Sox DH David Ortiz blasts fifth home run of the year

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/15) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz went 2 for 4 at the plate in Boston's 4-2 win over the Mariners on Saturday.

Ortiz did his damage in the third inning when he crushed a 1-2 pitch off of Felix Hernandez over the right field wall, his fifth of the season.

"You hear people say, 'Well, you're 39. You don't have that bat speed that you used to have.' You do," hitting coach Chilli Davis said before the game to the Boston Herald. "At 39, I still had that bat speed, but I didn't swing at everything. I knew when to generate enough bat speed on a pitch to drive it. But the one thing I wasn't unwilling to do was take a walk. I walked 90, 95 times. It's not sexy, I don't want to walk, but I'd rather walk than get myself out. And if you’re going to give me a single, I'll take a single."

Ortiz is now hitting .236 with 14 RBI in 127 at-bats this season.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz with two hits and an RBI on Monday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/12/15) Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz went 2 for 5 with an RBI and a double as the Red Sox beat the A's 5-4 on Monday. This was Ortiz' first RBI since May 3 against the Yankees. Since that game, Ortiz is hitting just .217 (5 for 23). 

Ortiz' last home run came on April 24, though he has reached base safely via a hit or a walk in 12 straight games.
