JUPITER, Fla. -- Travis d'Arnaud had been hitless in 21 straight at-bats and batting .125 (4-for-32) in Grapefruit League play. So hitting coach Dave Hudgens spent Friday working with the catcher.
"I'm seeing the ball well," d'Arnaud said. "I'm just over-swinging. Yesterday me and 'Hudgy' just worked on keeping my eye on the ball. If you keep your eye on the ball, you have a higher chance of succeeding than when you don't see the ball hit the bat."
Last year, d'Arnaud also was guilty of over-swinging, although that involved "wrapping" his bat at the start of his swing.
"This year I'm just pulling my head," d'Arnaud said. "That's all it is right now."
