Dayan Viciedo – If I were Viciedo’s hitting coach, he would drive me absolutely nuts. From my seat down the third base line, he finished every swing looking in my direction which left me feeling a bit self conscious. When he made contact, the ball exploded off of his bat, but he only made solid contact with two strikes. His bat speed is elite, but his mechanics are messy. He should adapt his two strike approach to be his every pitch approach which would not only shorten his swing, but help take advantage of his tremendous bat speed. At third base, he was iffy at best. His arm was solid average, but he didn’t move well laterally and his hands were just so so. With his size, I’m not sure he’s a great fit in left field or at first base either.
