Carter Bins Has a Whole New Swing/Approach

A few weeks ago, we covered the defensive abilities of Pittsburgh Pirates catching prospect Carter Bins. The Pirates acquired Bins last July from the Seattle Mariners for left-handed starter Tyler Anderson.

Back in early December, Bins started to train at Proform Baseball, working closely with Scott Templeton. I reached out to Templeton to discuss Bins and his current approach and swing at the plate.

"[Bins] focused mainly on his barrel turning into the slot, entering the zone from the inside, and staying through the zone as long as possible," said Templeton. "We started with a routine with his top and bottom hand placement and built and progressed from there. We have always been working on getting more towards the inside of the ball."
