Pham went 3-for-3 on Wednesday night against the Cubs and has seven hits in his last 13 at-bats after beginning spring training 0-for-17 following an issue with getting a new pair of contact lenses, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. "The difference is the contact lenses," manager Jayce Tingler said. "He's starting to find a set that he's feeling better with, and he's starting to get more reps."
This isn't your average set of contacts, but a special pair that helps Pham deal with an eye disorder called keratoconus. That eye disorder hindered his progress as a prospect in the Cardinals organization until he was properly diagnosed and treated. After a slow start this spring, Pham appears to be on pace for the start of the season.
