Adam LaRoche can’t take BP because he’s losing too much weight

We just learned that Ben Revere is bootylicious. Seems that Adam LaRoche is anti-bootylicious. Like, he literally can’t keep weight on and now that’s keeping him from taking batting practice:

Part of the issue, however, has been the weight loss caused by the medicine he takes to combat ADD (attention deficit disorder). LaRoche is so desperate to keep on as much weight as possible that batting practice outside on a warm day is counterproductive.

“You come back in and you’re soaking wet on a humid day and I can literally see the weight falling off,” he said. “I got way too light.”


ADD has always been a battle for him, going back to this days with the Braves. It’s now literally keeping him from the extra work he needs to improve upon a bad season.
