Lucas Duda Newsbeat
Thursday, May 21, 2015
“I’ll give most of the credit to Lucas Duda,” Collins said. “He is the one who has said, ‘I can hit lefties. I always have hit lefties.’ And I’m going to give Keith some credit.”
Hernandez—who hit .291 against southpaws during his career—downplayed his impact, but acknowledged Duda requested a session.
“We had one day where we worked together,” said Hernandez, a five-time All-Star as a lefty-hitting first baseman. “I just imparted to him tendencies of left-handers that I learned over 17 years, which I won’t divulge—just basically my experiences against left-handers. I just passed it on to him. But it was no alterations in his swing or anything drastic. It just was what I feel lefties like to do, how they like to work.
1.207 OPS for Duda against lefties this year in about 50 plates appearances. Small sample mirage? One of the things the Mets needed to happen for the Mets to be competitive this year was for Duda to be a productive play. Looks like that’s happening.
