Fuenmayor Continues to Struggle on Field
Fuenmayor has a busy schedule as he works hard in the morning on the mechanics of the game and then tries to use what he learned later that afternoon in games.
In fielding drills over at one field Anthony Garibaldi, Scott Campbell, Josh Bell, Leance Soto and Fuenmayor were working with the Blue Jays coaches on ground balls in which they had to run in the infield to field and then throw to first.
While most of the players completed that tough throw on the first try and were rewarded with a water break, Fuenmayor needed four repetitions to make an accurate throw. In his first try Fuenmayor double clutched before he threw causing Dick Scott, the Blue Jays director of player development, to turn into a basketball referee and signal a "travel" call. On the second try he wasn't able to bare-hand the ball cleanly, while on his third attempt he made a wild throw, before finally making the play properly.
Later in the afternoon Fuenmayor batted ninth and was the designated hitter for Lansing. He struggled in his first two at bats striking out, one swinging and one looking, before recording a rare spring training hit in his third and final at bat, a line-drive single to right field.
