That Boy Can Hit

Pete Abraham describing today's live batting practice:

The format was pretty simple. Each pitcher threw 35 pitches. The hitters rotated every five pitches. The pitchers threw from behind a screen to a catcher who was in the batting cage.

There was one moderately hard-hit ball off Mussina. He kept his pitches down and looked very good. Wang gave up five line drives, four off the bat of Jesus Montero [pictured above]. “He’s a strong young man, a strong hitter,” Joe Girardi said.
