Mr. Mankin,

I figured it was injuries because he started to surge again this year in the homer department before getting injured again. That was my reasoning. I havn't studied his mechanics extensively over the period of time he was injured. It could be possible, but even if the mechanics have changed it is most likely due to injury because he can't get his reps in the way he could if he was healthy for a full season. So my guess is if his mechanics were not the same, that was a result of the injuries and having to take a lot of time off.
