His swing might be the worst ever to make it to MLB. He will NEVER be a player until is swing is totally broken down and rebuilt. Both his hitting coach's should be fired immediately for their stupidity. Good riddance Pendleton and Parrish. So long Jason. what a waste.
It's 100% on Pendleton. He is the worst hitting coach in the big leagues. Atlanta hitters all get worse over time with his coaching.
Picture of me during the Chizik years (or as I like to call them, the it's all Jay Jacob's fault years)
I agree about Pendleton but he is coaching First now. Parrish took over this year. I don't know much about him. I think a lot of Heyward's struggles this year are due to injuries. Seems like he is always banged up.
Both are terrible. And Hey Hey is in a huge slump. Everything is out of whack.
He was a better hitter under Pendleton. He needs to look at what real hitters do with their hands. Haywood never lifts his bat so he doesn't load. He can't hit anything middle in. He can only drop the head. He might want to watch his rookie teammate. Freeman has good hands, lifts his bat and has a nice swing. He can wait longer on a pitch than JHey. Freeman will be a .300 hitter while Haywood will only get worst unless he adjusts. How his coach's have let him get to this point is baffling.
This is the biggest problem facing young players today. They are picking up bad habits when they are young because they are bigger and better athletes than their peers so they can get away with it. Heh Hey has all the ability in the world and if he works on it he can make the swing changes he needs to make. Problem with that is he will get worse before he gets better....
Not to be a nit picker but its Heyward not Heywood unless your making fun of him then apologies and proceed
