|Byung Ho Park connects during batting practice.|
Park didn't make a lot of contact last year, but when he did, he had a rather elect exit velocity. And he seems, in the very early going of spring training, to have recovered nicely from his hand surgery. On Friday he singled and doubled -- the double perhaps a blown call from being a homer -- and on Saturday he homered and hit a sac fly.
Perhaps his 2016 struggles were more the result of injury than talent or acclimation. My personal belief is that a lot of teams will regret letting him slide through waivers a few weeks ago. We'll see.
