Cubs Weekly Podcast: Hitting Coach Dustin Kelly

4 months agoStaff Report

Cubs hitting coach Dustin Kelly stopped by the Cubs Weekly Podcast in Mesa, Ariz. to chat with hosts Elise Menaker and Andy Martínez. Kelly shared how he doesn’t follow Spring Training numbers too closely, focusing on the process rather than the results. He then talks about Seiya Suzuki and how the right fielder can carry over his success from last season and spring into the regular season.

Kelly was reunited with Cody Bellinger and shared how he found out about his return to the team and what excites him about working with him again. The second year hitting coach provides more insight on Michael Busch, who he worked with in 2020 at the Dodgers’ alternate site during the COVID season. Later in the podcast, Kelly breaks down some swing adjustments for Canario, a fun Patrick Wisdom anecdote and what it’s like working with new manager Craig Counsell.

Menaker and Martínez assess Spring Training as the Cubs’ time in Arizona nears an end, including their impressions of Counsell and what the rotation could look like to start the season.
