Royals' Jose Guillen Feels Like He Lost His Power

New, 1 comment

Royals' Jose Guillen is  currently on an 18-game hitting streak but, according to him, it's not that impressive, the Kansas City Star reports.

“I’ve just become a slappy hitter,” Guillen lamented after getting two singles Wednesday in a 1-0 victory at Washington. “It’s like I’ve lost my power.”

The reason, he says, is a blister on his foot that's "really ticking me off."

“I (rotate) and push off on that foot when I swing,” he said. “That blister makes it hard to do that with any power. I mean, I’m seeing the ball pretty good, but all I can do is go up there and try to make contact.”

For the Royals sake, let's hope that's feeling better at the trade deadline.
