3/14 Millar spends little time with Rudy
Kevin Millar may want to meet Rudy Jaramillo for coffee every morning. Millar went 2-for-2 with a walk on Sunday, hitting a two-run homer and a double. He said he benefitted from an early session with the Cubs’ new hitting coach. A career .274 hitter, Millar worked on adding a little tap to help his timing.
“You see the ball a lot better, you’re able to lay off pitches and slow things down,” Millar said. “It was a big adjustment.
“[Jaramillo] is special,” Millar said. “It’s an honor to work with a guy who really knows the swing. I wasn’t tapping early and [he said], ‘Hey, get some rhythm back.'”
