Tigers | Torii Hunter changes approach

Detroit Tigers OF Torii Hunter changed his hitting approach to become more of a line-drive hitter than a big bopper at the tail end of last season with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and this year with the Tigers. Hunter is also using the entire field more than he has before, looking to drive outside pitches to the opposite field instead of trying to pull them. Hunter has a .360 batting average and .551 average on balls in play since the All-Star break last season.

Fantasy Tip: This is the kind of rennaissance that soon-to-be 38-year-olds need to do to in order to avoid natural regression in their skills. Hunter has successfully changed his approach and surprised most fantasy owners with his hot start. The question is whether he can sustain these levels of success all season. The answer is probably not, but he could remain pretty darn effective if he sticks with his new approach all year.
