Walker on adjusting the mechanics in BA's batting swing:
Part II was a bit more difficult because it involved changing the way he stood at the plate.
"His lower half was beating him consistently. He was out on his toes, he had his body in a bad position. Now he's more in a balanced situation. It has to be something he can use in a 3-2, man-on-second-and-two-outs situation against a reliever. We're in the baby steps of it right now, but I'm encouraged. We still have a long way to go."
- "Gavin Floyd suffered only a slightly sprained right ankle and is expected to make his Cactus League debut Friday"
- "Guillen once again pointed to Pablo Ozuna as his probable leadoff man for Opening Day against left-hander C.C. Sabathia. Ozuna also could serve as an emergency center fielder, according to Guillen, but he wouldn't start in that position"
- and Kenny may try to trade Casey Rogowski and Sean Tracey to a team where they'll have more opportunities to get some playing time. Tracey would like to stay. Is there anyone who'll give us something of value for Casey Rogowski?
