3/9 Soriano working with Rudy
Hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo and Alfonso Soriano watched some video Tuesday morning of the left fielder and his swing. The two have been reunited this year — Jaramillo was Soriano’s hitting coach in Texas.
“I feel good and I know what he’s telling me to do,” Soriano said. “I’m not worried about my hitting. My swing is there. I just have to feel comfortable in the field.”
Soriano is still testing his left knee, which needed arthroscopic surgery last September.
“He’s moving better,” Lou Piniella said Tuesday. “Remember, it’s early in the spring. He’s working hard. He’s going to make a mistake out there from time to time — c’mon. The secret with ‘Sori’ is that he hit and he hits for power and drives in runs for us. That’s what we’re interested in. He’s working with Rudy every day in that regard.”
