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.â†µ
“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.”â†µ
The reason, he says, is a blister on his foot that's "really ticking me off."â†µ
“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.”â†µ
For the Royals sake, let's hope that's feeling better at the trade deadline.
