New Cubs hitting coach Chili Davis has been working "at least weekly" with Jason Heyward in Arizona since November.
Heyward is entering Year Three of his eight-year, $184 million contract with the Cubs. While he saw some slight improvement in 2017 (.631 OPS to a .715 OPS), his offensive contributions have obviously been well short of expectations. "I need to learn Jason more than Jason needs to learn me," said Davis. "We’ve talked a lot about his swing, and we’ve looked at videos. But I think more what Jason and I are trying to do is to get Jason to understand the type of hitter that will make him the best offensive player that he can be." A hitting coach can only do so much, but Cubs president Theo Epstein said that Davis works well with line drive hitters and believes they "have a good chance to mesh." Jan 15 - 10:41 AM
