How does it feel to be

called up to the majors?

A:It’s been amazing. I’m really excited.

Is there a veteran in

the clubhouse that has

been helping you out, getting

you use to playing in the big

leagues?

A: A lot of guys have been great, but Curtis

Granderson had been so personable and open

to me about anything and any questions that I

had. I miss him now that he is in Toronto.

Is there one person you feel

most comfortable talking to

about how you’re playing? A:

Probably my dad, honestly. My dad is the

guy I talk too pretty much every night and

we go over the games and what happened.

My dad expects a lot from me. Not results,

but the effort I put in,

the approach I take

toward the game. I try

to be really honest with

him about how things

are going. He tries to

help with my swing. He

wishes he could be there more often to help

out with my swing. He’s seen it since I was two

years old, since I started swinging a bat. He’s

seen the progression of it. He knows all the

keys that I go back to, the basics I go back to.

I definitely go to him for advice on the swing

and we try to solve those problems as they

come up.

You just took a picture with

my son and gave him an

autograph, do you mind giving

fans autographs? A: It’s something

that is just easy for me to do. If someone asks

for an autograph, to just get it out, that little

time can make a fan for life. And anyone that

wants to support me, I’m not going to turn

that down. It’s always nice to have support. It’s

just something that I remember as a kid and

you try to not become too high and mighty for 

those kind of things.
