Lugo blames 2007 on stomach parasites


The first year of Julio Lugo‘s 4-year deal was a disappointment by everyone’s standards. Lugo hit a meager .237/.294/.349 despite having a career .271/.333/.395 line. Now he’s told Rob Bradford that a stomach parasite sapped him of his strength last season. Now he’s ten pounds heavier and feeling strong and back to normal, and reports are that he’s noticeably stronger and buffer looking. Hitting coach Dave Magadan vouches that he’s hitting with more pop compared to last spring; let’s hope his conditioning helps him this season.
