to batting low in the lineup. Hit his 2nd HR today. I think part of the reason he's batting before the pitcher is it forces him to be selective, fewer pitches to hit. Another thing advanced metrics has taken: the level swing. Hitting coach, Ward, and Roberts are telling him to hit in the air - has a chance for extra bases. Ground balls have patterns with each hitter advanced metrics has figured out. So he's likely to ground into an out with more level swings.
