The Tigers’ hitting staff has a task ahead in developing the club’s top glove into an MLB-level bat. According to a recent article in the Detroit News, Detroit Tigers hitting coach Lloyd McClendon claims that he has seen progress with two of the Tigers’ best defensive players when it comes to wielding the wood on offense.
