Player Profile: Since his 2010 swing transformation, Jose Bautista has slugged 249 home runs, the most over that time. Now in his mid-30s, Bautista played in his fewest games (116) since his 2012 when he needed his wrist surgically repaired and was limited to 92 games. He battled neck, quad, turf toe and knee ailments throughout the year. Getting off the artificial turf or a transition to DH may be in order. The power is definitely still there when he is healthy.
