Brantly trusts in 'ability to hit'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (2/17/2013) The Sun-Sentinel reports Marlins catcher Rob Brantly might need some work defensively, but the team remains enamored with his offensive skills. "You want a catcher to run your pitching staff and be a great defensive catcher. But if they can hit like Rob does, it's just a plus," Marlins hitting coach Tino Martinez said. "He has a short, compact swing. He's going to hit some home runs as well." Brantly admitted he was overaggressive at the plate when he first arrived in a midseason trade from Detroit last season, but he said with the help of some veterans his confidence is soaring heading into 2013. "I had Greg Dobbs and John Buck just kind of pull me aside and say, 'It's OK to take a pitch,'" Brantly said. "They helped me in realizing some patterns and helped bring me back down to earth. I feel like a baseball player. I feel I can go out there and play the game. I trust my ability to hit."
