Indians 'encouraged' by changes made by Tyler Naquin
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Indians outfield prospect Tyler Naquin, who was the team's first-round pick in 2012, will be in camp this spring as a non-roster invite. It will be a chance for the team and fans to see his how he's progressing after making a change last season to his setup in the batter's box.

"He’s not that different than what we drafted," Indians vice president of player development Ross Atkins told MLB.com. "We’re more encouraged based on his open-mindedness. He came to us wanting to put himself in a more powerful position, then did it in-season. This is a guy who had success, and we didn’t ask him to do it. He can be more consistent in that position.

"It’s less about the adjustment but more about his mindset and his perseverance that’s most encouraging. He was open, willing and did it in season is the skill we’re more encouraged by."
