Erick Peña has new approach for 2022
Peña lost his focus on his plan at the plate last season when he struggled. He is focusing on his approach and not results for 2022.
Peña started the 2021 season hot, posting a .880 OPS with 11 RBI in 11 games before falling off. Peña admitted that he began to press after going five games without a hit. His mind drifted, which also led his body to drift. Peña acknowledged that he tried to hit the ball harder with every swing, and he only pressed harder when it failed. This led to his downward spiral. Peña was quoted saying, "What I'm doing now is following my plan. Sticking to it. And the results will come when they come." Peña is an excellent buy-low in dynasty leagues.
