Every spring training involves some players going through body transformations that are noticeable in nature.
Reporters often see this as an opportunity to give a nice tidbit of information about the team when news is slow.
You'd be wise to avoid making such observations with Michael Young patrolling social media.
More clear from press box elevation how much different Profar's body looks this year. More athletic, fit for lack of better term. Smaller waist, more defined lower half.— Evan Grant (@Evan_P_Grant) March 8, 2018
Uh...not weird at all.
More defined lower half? They wear pants. Baggy ones. More clear from press box elevation? I’ve been up there. The view is better in the clubhouse, where you loiter consistently. And in general, it’s clear you lack better terms on most things. Hot garbage tweet, Grant. https://t.co/8jLUHj837p— Michael Young (@MikeyY626) March 8, 2018
This seems like one of the more arbitrary things to get triggered over on the internet, but no ignorance is too insubstantial for Young to look the other way.
Maybe the clubhouse where players shower, hang out and see each other on a daily basis is a better place to know exactly what athletic shape a player is in. It's hard to argue with the concept.
But reporters are around the team plenty as well.
We're just as confused as you are.
