Astros | Brett Wallace put in the work

Houston Astros 1B Brett Wallace worked to drop weight early in the season and worked tirelessly with hitting coach Mike Barnett to improve his path to the ball, use his legs more and pull the ball more. "It's obviously going to be a work in progress, but we did a lot of work in loosening up my back side and kind of just staying with my legs," Wallace said. "It's kind of something everyone talked to me about, using my legs and using them to hit for more power, and I think the more at-bats I've gotten throughout pro ball, we've been able to get me to that comfort level with using them and that's where I'm at right now."
