Josh VanMeter’s Reds rise the result of thinking differently about hitting – The Athletic

I’m waiting to see how permanent his change will be and will it be enough to keep him in MLB.

VanMeter, who was traded to the Reds that offseason, watched a lot of video, starting with Barry Bonds.

“The best hitters get on a plane early and are in the zone as long as they possibly can. I wasn’t getting into the zone early enough,” VanMeter said. “I was really re-teaching myself how to get on a better path, slightly upward through the zone. A lot of it for me, too, was figuring out how to stay in my back hip as long as I possibly could. I guess, to make that simple, it’s all staying behind the ball, not getting out over my front side and stuff like that.”
