Rays hitting genius/coach Derek Shelton joined The Commish today to talk about the offensive explosion that has gone on the past few weeks with the Rays team. Derek talked about the importance of Evan Longoria’s health as being a big factor in keeping depth in the Rays lineup. Another person that Shelton had high praise for was Desmond Jennings, and his role in the lead-off spot. Two big surprises for the Rays this year has been guys like Kelly Johnson and James Loney, and Derek talked about those guys and their approach to hitting this season.
Of course, we couldn’t have Derek Shelton join us without mentioning our favorite product, The Speed Hitter. Derek also filled us in a new version of the Speed Hitter, coming soon!
