Pirates | Steve Pearce eliminating leg kick

Thu, 17 Mar 2011 13:20:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Steve Pearce eliminated the leg kick in his swing roughly a week ago in order to simplify his mechanics at the plate, according to MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch. "You don't want to take away what's natural but you definitely want to be simplified, so things can be maintained very easily," hitting coach Gregg Ritchie said. "There is a magnitude of things that it's going to accomplish. He is seeing the ball bigger, eliminating the strikeouts, putting the ball in play and hitting the ball on the money." Pearce is feeling good and has reached base in five of his last eight spring at-bats. He is competing with 3Bs Garrett Atkins, Andy Marte and Josh Fields for a corner utility role.

"You don't want to ever say a player has missed it," general manager Neal Huntington said of Clement. "The potential is still there. We have seen the raw power. We still see the things that we liked when we acquired him as part of the five players that we got from Seattle. But there may be some things out of his control."
