Change to Jones’ swing is paying off
After having a disastrous month of August (.144/.196/.327) Garrett Jones is back on track after making some adjustments to his swing with hitting coach Don Long.
“My hands were getting real high, and I had some extra movement in there, which was causing my timing to be off,” Jones said. “I’ve lowered my hands to try and be more direct to the ball. It’s helping. I’m just trying to finish strong and end on a positive note.”
The month of September, Jones is batting .276 and in his past seven games he is hitting .370 with four doubles and nine RBI.
