Athletics' Yoenis Cespedes working on new swing

Oakland Athletics’ third year outfielder Yoenis Cespedes has made a couple adjustments to his swing during the off-season, but appears to be struggling with the changes thus far.

In result of him trying to get things together with his brand new swing, his numbers have struggled early on in the Spring. Right now he’s hitting just .118/.139/.176 with seven RBI’s.

Last year Cespedes seen his numbers drop a little bit, but his home run total improved by three. He finished the year with a batting line of .240/.394/.442 with 26 home runs and 80 RBI’s.

Cespedes could scrap his new swing and roll with something that he was comfortable with when he first entered the Major League. I’m sure he’ll get together with Oakland’s hitting coach and see if they can either make it a little easier. Yoenis originally changed things up to lower his strike out totals.
