Tigers | J.D. Martinez talks about overhauling his swing

Tue, 24 Jun 2014 20:00:29 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF J.D. Martinez said he decided to "completely" change his swing after spending time watching tape of the game's top hitters last year. "I had held my hands high and had an early foot stride with a wide stance," Martinez said. "I dropped my hands low, got a smoother stride and a straighter stance."

Fantasy Tip: It's tough to argue with the results of his reinvented swing. Martinez is hitting .310 with seven home runs and 27 RBIs in 113 at-bats this year. The sample size is still somewhat small, but if you need a little extra pop in your lineup, he is worth taking a chance on.
