Padres | Will Venable made changes last year
San Diego Padres OF Will Venable finally found an acceptable approach to his swing after entrusting hitting coach Phil Plantier with fixing his mechanics, and Venable went on to post career highs in hits (110), games (148), doubles (26), triples (eight), runs (62) and at-bats (417). Plantier and assistant hitting coach Alonzo Powell eliminated Venable's double toe tap with the front foot in his stride. He also kept his bat much more quiet instead of waving it back and forth. "I'm trying to build on the improvements I made with the swing last year and not changing a whole lot. I want to continue to be natural and let my ability take over and stay out of the way as far as tinkering with too much mechanical stuff," Venable said.
