RC Interview with Chris Lubanski
Royals Corner: Chris, how do you feel your spring is going so far? Chris Lubanski: It's going well. I've played about five or six big league games, and I've been here for three weeks with the minicamp and the other camp, and it's going well. I feel really good. Lubanski singled in his only at bat on Tuesday vs. the Angels RC: What's it like hanging around these big leaguers? Are you learning a lot? CL: Oh, it's great. Whenever you get up here, you can kind of just feed off them and see how they play the game. You can learn the little things, and it's a great opportunity. RC: How did you prepare for this season? What did you do during the offseason? CL: I was out here for a good month, working out with Andre and [Ryan Stoneberg], our conditioning guy. For about two months, I really hit the weights hard, and put on some good weight, getting stronger. I just really worked on my swing a lot so I could get off to a good start. RC: Do you feel like you've gained some power? You definitely look a lot bigger. CL: Yeah, I feel like the ball is jumping off my bat a lot better than it was last year, and hopefully I can turn that into some more extra base hits. Lubanski feels the ball is jumping off his bat better this spring RC: Do you have the same agility, with the extra muscle? CL: Yeah, that's one thing I really focused on – since I knew I was getting bigger – was my leg strength and my first step quickness, especially out here when I was working out with Stoneberg. I still feel pretty quick. RC: What are your goals for the rest of the spring and this season? CL: I'm trying not to think about numbers too much, I just want to keep going out there, keep working hard, and when I get my opportunity, take advantage of it.
