Cubs | Brett Jackson worked on swing in offseason

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 12:25:49 -0800

Chicago Cubs OF Brett Jackson worked with manager Dale Sveum and hitting coach James Rowson in the offseason to lower his left elbow, dropping his hands and leaving less room for the bat to travel to the ball. Jackson also worked on other ways to shorten his swing after he hit just .116 with one extra-base hit in his last 20 games last season. "So far, so good," Sveum said. "It's (only about) five at-bats, and he has centered the ball. The first one he hit to center field (Saturday) was a great swing. That's about as quick as you can get a bat through the strike zone." Jackson will begin in the minors this year and will have to prove he has shortened his swing to avoid large amounts of strikeouts.

Cubs | More on Brett Jackson

Wed, 13 Feb 2013 16:28:38 -0800

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Brett Jackson's hands are now lower in his batting stance and his swing is more compact after working in the offseason with manager Dale Sveum and hitting coach James Rowson. "It has to do with using more of my top hand," Jackson said of the changes. "I'm a right-hand dominant athlete, and I have a tendency to try to overdo it a little bit with my bottom hand. If you watch swings from last year, you know my back elbow was getting really high and causing kind of like a teetering effect and making me slightly late on everything."

That's the final piece of the puzzle."
