Ryan Howard has adjusted his hitting mechanics by lowering his hands in his stance.
Howard tried the new technique on a suggestion from teammate Marlon Byrd and plans to stick with it for a while. "I guess my hands have crept up over the years," said Howard. "I think when I first came up, they were lower. It’s a weird feeling but, you know, I’m trying something new. I’m trying to get my hands in the zone faster and keep them in the zone." Howard is hitting just .231 with a career-low .703 OPS, so it's worth a shot. Jul 8 - 11:25 AM
