J.D. Davis had a breakout 2019 season in his first year with the Mets, batting .307 and hitting 22 home runs in 140 games.
He talked to SNY's Todd Zeile at Spring Training about his swing and how he prepares for games. Zeile noticed Davis' ability to hit the ball to right field and stay off breaking balls.
"I started really tuning into that right-center or at second base probably by college, it's just the way my swing worked," Davis said. "It helped me stay more on the fast ball and not really pull off on any off-speed."
Davis would go on to mention that he used to watch an interview with former MLB All-Star Matt Holliday over and over to help him with his swing.
"I know an interview on YouTube with Matt Holliday, he really went into that," Davis said. "I remember going, struggling, and I watched that video probably around a dozen times in Double-A and Triple-A."
