Mets 1B Lucas Duda has 'confidence' he can hit southpaws
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets first baseman Lucas Duda hit just .180 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 111 at-bats against left-handed pitchers in 2014.

Manager Terry Collins indicated Duda became a pull-oriented hitter last season and was hurt not using all fields against lefties. Duda didn't seem to disagree when speaking with reporters Thursday.

"I think that I did get a bit too much thinking to the right side of the field," Duda said, per ESPN. "That’s an adjustment I have to make during the season, or even before the season starts. And I think I will. I have confidence in myself."

Michael Cuddyer, who signed a two-year deal in November, could be a fallback option at first base for the Mets, if Duda continues to struggle against southpaws.

"Acquiring Michael Cuddyer is huge for us -- a veteran presence and a guy with his track record," Duda said. "As far as the lefties go, I feel like in the past I’ve hit lefties a little bit better than I’ve shown. … But if he has to spell me at first base versus lefties, whatever is good for the team, whatever is going to help us win, I’m all for. I’ll come off the bench or come in late in the game or whatever it is. Anything to help us win. That’s our main goal. We’ve got to accomplish it this year."

Mets hitting coach working on strategy to help Lucas Duda vs. LHPs
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

New Mets hitting coach Kevin Long said Wednesday he feels throwing left-handed will help left-handed hitters like Lucas Duda improve against lefties, according to ESPN. Duda hit .180 against lefties in 2014 and is batting .212 against them in his MLB career.

"I'll move over a little bit more so that it makes it more difficult to pick up my arm slot," Long said. "... That should help Lucas, getting to face me a number of times. I know Curtis (Granderson), every time we faced a lefty, and even when we didn't, would take batting practice off me. All of my flips in the cages are left-handed. Obviously the more that you face a lefty, the more comfortable you should become and be."
