Mark Teixeira to bunt in 2012
by Matt S.
From MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports Mark Teixeira said Tuesday that he might lay some bunts down this season in order to beat the shift. Teams have quickly adjusted to Teixeira’s pull-happy ways, which led to career-lows in batting average (.248) and batting average on balls in play (.239) last season. The hope is that occasionally laying one down could keep opposing defenses honest.
