Situational hitting drill fuels competition

Elvis Andrus called himself the “MVP” of Thursday’s situational hitting exercises among the infielders. The infielders are split into two groups – one led by Andrus and the other by Adrian Beltre – that are competing in a game that awards points based on certain fundamentals.

Andrus’ group has an eight-point lead with two more sessions left, and let it be known Friday in the clubhouse.

“We’re really good,” Andrus said. “We’re going to continue to dominate.”

Beltre disagreed, saying: “We’ve got them exactly where we want them.”

The loser when it’s over will have to buy lunch for the entire camp.
