Re: Reds Sign Jonathan Broxton- 3 Years, $21m; 4th Year option
Broxton began throwing a cutter in late August, according to Brooks Baseball. The cutter became one of Broxton’s favorite tools in September—especially against left-handers when trailing in the count, or versus righties to start encounters. Broxton’s new toy finished the season with the highest whiff rate, lowest ball rate, and lowest True Average-against of his arsenal.
Is it just me, or have there been a lot of pitchers that have added a cutter later in their career and are able to squeeze a few more good years out in the process?
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
