Phillies | Domonic Brown clicking with hitting coach

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown has been clicking with new assistant hitting coach Wally Joyner this spring. Both Brown and Joyner attended the same high school, and the two began working together in early February. Brown made changes to how he grips the bat; at times, he would wrap his hands and wrists around the bat. "We straightened his hands out a little bit, allowing his wrists to cock," Joyner said. "He's a big boy. He looks great. We want to take advantage of that size and leverage. That's one of the assets that Ryan Howard has. And he uses it. He has a lot of leverage. He stays behind it." The adjustments have been paying off for Brown so far in spring training.
