PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Lucas Duda suggested his stance and swing are not radically different this spring training, and mostly are a minimizing of his movements.

Terry Collins said Thursday that Duda would get plenty of early Grapefruit League action to work on recent adjustments.

"It's not like I'm hitting on my head. It's just quieting some things down," Duda said. "I just eliminated the toe tap, and my hands in the past have been kind of crazy [with movement]. It's quieter."
