Cubs manager Dale Sveum said Tuesday that Brett Jackson has completely overhauled his swing.
Jackson recently spent time with Sveum and and the Cubs hitting coaches in Mesa and has apparently made "huge strides." "I think he's got a good base to work with going into the rest of the winter and going into Spring Training to understand the art of hitting, so to speak," said Sveum. "Sometimes it gets lost and taught the wrong way." Jackson, 24, batted just .175/.303/.342 with 59 strikeouts over 142 plate appearances during his first taste of the big leagues this past season and is expected to begin 2013 in the minors.
