In this submit, Curtis Christianson and Jason A. Churchill will notice any changes in Jarred Kelenic‘s set up and swing. At the very least nearly anything recognizable to the bare eye.

In Kelenic’s final dozen online games or so, he has been setting up to turn it around at the plate with ,ore hits, and he’s been hitting the ball the other way a large amount. In addition, the electrical power has been far more dependable. Granted, it’s versus Triple-A pitching.

I do the job for the Tacoma Rainiers, and seen a modify in Kelenic’s swing a short while ago. It caught my eye that in two-strike counts Kelenic prolonged his right foot out a bit farther than standard and did not use a leg kick. He experienced a slight toe switch, but not his typical leg kick.

Following about a 7 days Kelenic seems to have gone back to his usual leg kick just after a short period of time of time. Most likely it’s a thing he’s tinkering with and didn’t like it, or is selecting to use it in specific predicaments and not other individuals.

Kelenic noted early in his time in Tacoma and even prior to that he was trying to preserve his hands unfastened to make a much more effortless, whippy-style swing, which in theory can enable him in a whole lot of places, such as strike zone protection, acquiring to good velocity, and trusting his palms to the stage he can feel assured staying back and continue to get the barrel to the baseball.

Here he is June 22 accomplishing just that and hitting a laser out to straight-absent remaining discipline:


In this article he is in the similar game hitting a line generate double into correct-middle and two factors are significantly distinctive right here.


1. The loose palms may perhaps be aiding mainly because that is a shorter swing with a shorter load.
2. The entrance foot is down quite swiftly, no floating. This is a signal he’s trusting he can get to the pitch, and he’s wanting to catch barrels, not hit the ball 500 toes or 200 mph.

Not at all saying he’s set. We’re just monitoring apparent variations.
