Phillies | No tinkering with Hunter Pence

Despite having a .256 batting average, .297 on-base percentage, and .778 on-base plus slugging mark, well below his career averages of .291, .341, and .826, Philadelphia Phillies coaches do not plan to tinker with OF Hunter Pence's mechanics. In essence, they leave him alone. "Hunter chases bad balls at times," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "He's different from any hitter I've ever had... We don't want to confuse him, we don't want to get him out of sync with his thinking. The way that he approaches hitting, he will always swing at balls out of the strike zone."
