Angels | Josh Hamilton aggressive at the plate

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Josh Hamilton struck out 162 and 158 times in the last two seasons, and it was one of the reasons he had a disappointing slash lines of .250/.307/.432 last season. Hamilton swung early in the count during all of his at-bats in the spring game Monday, March 17, and he swung at the first pitch 42 percent of the time in 2013. Hamilton hit .281 with six home runs in 89 at-bats when he put the first pitch into play, but he was expanding the zone to pitches well off the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton's power skills remain, but he'll need to show much better plate discipline for his batting average to rebound. At this point in his career, he's once again a big risk, but it could pay off if he can stay healthy.
