With this new swing he looks like he could take over the No. 2 spot in the lineup

This is tremendous... there are so many intricate parts to a swing that all have to be in unison. When things are going well, it just happens. When it's not going well, it can be tough to find the piece that is throwing things off.
But from this, you can see that there is a lot of potential with Dozier that just didn't show last year. This is certainly encouraging.

Great to see his mechanics coming around! I feel that with a significant improvement in his hitting he'll be less apt to make errors in the field as well. Last year you could tell how frustrated he was by his plate appearances by how he let it carry over into his defense.

Love this kind of analysis. Moar!
Do those photos indicate that some of his problems were due to "the fixes suggested" by the Twins?

While collecting those stances was amusing last season, it would be nice if I have to add only one more to the end of that sequence. Glad to see that pic made it into this article!

Turn your hip, and let it whip. It's a mantra for teaching kids to smack a ball off a tee. Once you get them squatting in a good stance, a kid doesn't want to step into the ball, crank the belt buckle towards second base and snap the bat through the hitting zone. They just want to wave their arms, like Butera.
