Re: Nice piece on Johnny Cueto from fangraphs
I assume Cueto's early success had other teams scrambling to the videos to find some answers to his change-up. When adjustments were made by batters, I believe Cueto had his confidence rattled.
He beat himself too often last year by making mistakes. Pole and hopefully Soto need to work with him to stay confident, pitch to his strengths, and recognize when to make adjustments. How he is handled this year will be very important to his future success.
