Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams said Saturday, March 1, that he will not attempt to alter the power stroke of prospect SS Zach Walters. "I think his stroke is his stroke. It's very difficult to change a tiger's stripes," Williams said. "He has power from both sides of the plate. I think the maturation process is such that as he goes within his career, he'll learn that some home runs come and you can't force them. You can't stand up there and say, 'I'm a power guy, and this is what I do', and get away from your game, whatever it is. So I'd like to see him eventually become a .300 hitter with power."
