Quick Thoughts on Nomar Mazara’s swing
I’m not a scout. I’m not a coach. But anyone who watches baseball or has played knows what a long leg stride means for a hitter. It’s either hit or miss. And at the age of 16, Nomar Mazara and the Texas Rangers should look into eliminating that leg kick he does.
I have seen reports that have said Mazara has 80 raw power. That’s the reason why the Rangers inked him to a 5 million dollar deal in the off-season. And this came as a surprise to everyone. Thanks to Bullpen Banter, we have a cage session of Mazara and an at-bat. Below is the video and my thoughts.
As you can see in the footage, Mazara leg rises up towards his hips. This cause no fluidness in the swing and also unbalance when the front foot lands. He brings his hands back nicely but if the leg kick cannot be fixed the Rangers might have a hit or miss here.
Nomar Mazara is a project. I’ll take Ronald Guzman any day.
