Practices continued as they have the past few days. Today, they ended a little early as the players were to attend a team golf outing. I have a little commentary, some photos of post-strength and conditioning Mickey Moniak, and lots of video mostly pitchers but also Moniak, Cole Stobbe, and Kyle Martin taking a few swings.
On Tuesday, Dylan Cozens hit a HR to left center off Jerad Eickhoff during live batting practice. It cleasily cleared the fence, well to the right of the new scoreboard on Roberts Field. He continued to bash during regular BP off Chris Truby. He cut through the wind on a powerful drive to right that appeared to land on the hill leading up to route 19. Toward the end of the session, he hit all three pitches of one turn at the plate over the left field fence. He hits towering shots.
Jorge Alfaro hits home runs on a line. He doesn’t get near as much altitude as Cozens, but his HRs get out quick.
Scott Kingery is still showing HR power to his pull side, but usually within 40-50 feet of the pole.
Here are several videos of pitchers throwing live batting practice. In order to keep the videos at a reasonable length, Most are just two pitches long.
Nick Fanti 2 pitches as he prepares for team Italy in the WBC.
Cole Stobbe batting practice 5 swings. I think he went yard on two of these swings.
