Mets | Matt Den Dekker needs more contact
Thu, 07 Mar 2013 14:20:40 -0800

New York Mets OF Matt Den Dekker has shown that he has legitimate big league power abilities, but he needs to show the team that he can make more contact if he wants to be on the major league roster. He struck out 154 times in 533 at-bats in the minors last year, which was the most by a minor leaguer with the team all year and 21st most in the minors last year. "One of the things we're working with Matt hard on is a two-strike approach - cut the strikeouts back so he makes better contact, because he's got such good legs that if he puts the ball in play, he's got a chance to get on base and score runs," manager Terry Collins said.
