When you watch Nomar Mazara on the field, you see someone who knows how to have fun.
More than being in sync with opposing pitchers is his goal in 2017. After hitting .324 in his first 53 games as a rookie, he only hit .228 the last 82 games.
Rangers manager, Jeff Banister says, “He’s probably a little more determined know. I think there’s a certain comfort level that he knows the landscape. He knows the expectations.”
“I have to make some adjustments. They tried to get me off balance. I was chasing a lot the second half. I’m going to try not to do it, try to stick to my plan and keep rolling,” adds Mazara.
Mazara said his goal in the offseason was to get better at everything…and to do so, he’s not shy about turning to teammates for advice, “Beltre, Andrus, Choo and now Napoli and Gomez are here. There good guys to talk to. They’re good guys to look forward to, especially being around the league like 20 years.”
A career Mazara would love to replicate.
