Asked if Cespedes could potentially go back to his original swing, Melvin said, "Maybe it's a little bit of a hybrid." Cespedes took his new-look swing over to the A's Minor League game, doubling and walking in four at-bats in a low-pressure environment. A's manager Bob Melvin was pleased to see cleanup hitter Cespedes, who finished 2-for-3 with a walk, go deep. He's sporting a shorter swing he hopes will eventually lead to more contact, but finding the right timing with it has been troublesome and plenty frustrating for the Cuban. "It's just that when you're continually having some bad at-bats and just can't find your way, sometimes it makes some sense to go over there and just get a few more at-bats. He likes a lot of at-bats."
