Royals | Eric Hosmer worked hard in offseason
Thu, 14 Feb 2013 15:57:31 -0800

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer worked hard in the offseason on his hitting after a disappointing year in 2012. Hosmer is projected to hit third in this year's lineup, which will allow OF Alex Gordon to once again hit atop the lineup. Hosmer thinks he found what was wrong with his swing last season. "I just think," he said, "I started leaking out in front with my back side a lot." His back foot was moving instead of staying put, which made him unable to catch up to pitches. In the offseason, Hosmer slowed things down and went to work on fixing his mechanics. Working with new hitting coach Jack Maloof, Hosmer worked to shorten his hands and approach at the plate and also to keep his front side quiet while getting his front foot down.
