Jason Heyward has spent the offseason trying to recapture the swing he used in 2012.
2012 was Heyward's high-water mark offensively as he clubbed a career-high 27 home runs while adding 82 RBI. "He’s trying to mirror the swing he had then," said hitting coach John Mallee, who has worked extensively with Heyward this offseason. "Right now the path is not the same it was then. It’s not making a change. It’s getting him back to who he was." The 27-year-old bottomed out last season, hitting just .230 with seven homers and 49 RBI. He's entering the second year of an eight-year, $184 million contract. Jan 14 - 11:24 PM
