Mike Leake in the batting cage - A Hunt and Peck

Check out the pitcher's power swing.

Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

A seemingly apparent strategy of the Cardinals has not just been to acquire skilled baseball players, but skilled athletes in general. The starting rotation is evident of this, from the former shortstop Carlos Martinez to a multi-sport high school athlete in Adam Wainwright, athletic skill is prevalent up and down the rotation. Mike Leake, the newest addition, is no exception. A bit has been made about Mike Leake's ability not just as a pitcher, but as hitter as well. Watch him talk hittin' with MLB Network's Al Leiter on the network's 30 Clubs in 30 Days.
