TORONTO - Following the Blue Jays-Angels game on Tuesday, in which he hit the first grand slam of his big-league career, Anthony Gose and manager John Gibbons both spoke of how the fleet outfielder was attempting to change his batting mechanics, specifically eliminating his leg kick as he strides into the ball at the start of his swing.

The belief is the extra motion neither helps with his timing or his power, and may take away from both.

It's a bad habit that Gose and hitting coach Chad Mottola find difficult to shake.
