A.J. Keeps the Cutter

with 2 comments

You heard it here first…A.J. has officially ditched his 2-seam fastball and now throws a cutter instead. Nobody knows why- he was a ground ball machine last year on the strength of his sinking fastball. If I can weasel it out of him tonight, the scoop will be over at Baseball Digest Daily

The cutter wasn’t much of a factor tonight- he threw it 9 times for 4 strikes, 4 balls, and one single (far right at the belt in the image below) Tonight A.J’s problem was leaving his changeup and curve up in the zone, and grooving a 95 mph fastball about as down the middle as they come to Eric Hinske.

  1. So, what wonderful words of wisdom did AJ have on the new pitch?

  2. A.J. is a meathead. End of story. End of scoop. Meat + Head = A.J.
