    The Ringer's Ben Lindbergh and Michael Baumann talk to Dodgers setup man Grant Dayton about being a 28-year-old rookie, his whirlwind success in 2016, his fascinating whiffs-and-flies fastball, and how a move from the Marlins to the Dodgers helped him embrace his unconventional pitching approach (0:35). Then they bring on hitting instructor Doug Latta to discuss working with big leaguers without being employed by an MLB team, reinventing Justin Turner, and why the uppercut, fly-ball-oriented swing is replacing an outmoded belief in "hitting down on the ball" (23:50). ​
