When the hitter established his stance, one of the most important things for him is the distance that he is from a play.
Basic rule of thumb, I want to lean over, touch my bat to the outside corner to make sure that I have played coverage. That is the first and most important thing when you consider the basic stance and distance from the plate. First stance can vary throughout the game and depending upon how hard the pitcher is throwing, or for that matter how soft to be his thrown? The harder throw made take us to an adjustment towards more at the back of the box.
Where softer throw may make us adjust a little bit more to the upper part of the boxes

Unless, the pitcher is thinking that hitter cannot get to the outside pitch and that is exactly what the hitter wants in this case.
The other stance that it is important in hitting is the two strikes stance or the two strike approach for hitting. In this, we consider the three opts, Western is choking up on the bat, he is up on the play, and he will shorten up on a swing to protect the plate.
