Blue Jays | Colby Rasmus being approached differently

Opposing pitchers are pitching Toronto Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus more up and in after he made the move up in the batters box in order to pull the ball and attack pitches on the outer part of the plate. "What I see is when he gets some fastballs around the plate, he's fouling them off and missing them rather than squaring them up," skipper John Farrell said. "Where he's at in the box in relation to the plate, we did see probably about a month ago, we came out of New York and they really elevated some fastballs in on him." His short absence with a groin injury also seems to have thrown his timing off a bit.
