Marlins' Jennings on Yelich's hit streak: 'He's attacking pitches now'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"I see a much better mindset," Jennings said. "He's attacking pitches now. I think early he had some of the mindset of last year being the leadoff hitter. So he was working the count. Now he's in a spot where he can be a run producer and we need him to do that because he has that capability. So we're probably getting a little bit of that leadoff mentality out of his mind and letting him be a guy that can shoot the ball line to line and have a little thump in that bat."
