Yankees: Higashioka reveals former rival Josh Donaldson helped him improve his hitting

A few days ago it was announced that the New York Yankees they had signed one of their players’ ‘public enemies’. Josh Donaldson. However, everything seems to indicate that they have ironed out rough edges and there is even a better relationship. This because Kyle Higashioka revealed recently that the former Minnesota Twins has helped him improve his batting ahead of the 2022 season of MLB.

Kyle Higashioka has surprised during Spring Training for the New York Yankees, as he has shown greater effectiveness with the bat, a situation in which Josh Donaldson would be involved.

This is because the catcher for the Bronx team said that he is taking advantage now that he can talk to the ex-Minnesota Twins and they would be taking advice from him to improve their ‘approach’ in hitting.

Higashioka mentions that it was early on that he took Donaldson as an example to work on his batting skills, as they had a similar height and build to build on.

Now Kyle Higashioka has his model a few meters from him and after having smoothed over the issue of Josh Donaldson’s comments on Gerrit Cole, they can continue working together.
