Craig Brazell works to get his power swing back?

Seems Akinobu Mayumi and batting coach Yutaka Wada spent some time (15-20 minutes) working with Craig Brazell on his swing yesterday.  Brazell hasn't hit a homer in (GASP!) 5 games and the Tigers felt there might be a problem with his swing.  And that problem, according to batting coach Wada, was a timing issue -- Brazell was apparently swinging the bat a little later than usual, causing him to rush his swing and therefore, lose some power.
