The Problem Behind D’Arnaud’s Hitting Woes

Andy Martino of the Daily News sheds light on the little-known problem that is plaguing Travis d’Arnaud at the plate. D’Arnaud calls it “The Wrap,” that thing he does with his wrists before swinging at a pitch, that thing that helps explain why a great prospect batted .202 in 99 big-league at-bats last year, and […]

Davis gets a […]
