When Marlon Byrd first joined the Red Sox on April 22, he was hitting just 3-for-43 to start the season. The abysmal offensive numbers were a concern for many in Red Sox Nation. But the woes at the plate seemed to end along with his career in Chicago.
In eight games with the Red Sox, Byrd has recorded 10 hits in just 30 at-bats. The turnaround since coming to Boston, Byrd says, is no coincidence.
Byrd credited Kevin Youkilis and the Red Sox staff with helping him adjust his stance and with providing tips on his approach at the plate.
Byrd revealed the intricate details after Monday's 11-6 win during Red Sox Clubhouse Uncut.
