Strange events with CT3 imho.

By: Torpedoman



It's like he spent the previous offseason changing and honing his swing, and it produced a fantastic 2017 season at the plate. It appears to me however that he's once again changed it.. and has struggled all season. 

Looks like that extra effort to improve his up angle exit trajectory has changed his whole swing. He's dropping that right shoulder lower and in doing so, is forcing his body to lean more towards/across the plate instead of maintaining a straight up swing approach with his body stance. Ever notice how many times after that swing miss, his whole body seems to fall across the plate. His swing is now really unbalanced, and his newly created upper-cut is making less and less contact. hence the big strikeout #s.  Just my thought anyway.
