That's his second most used pitch and he has increasingly used it compared to his rookie year. If I am reading those numbers correctly, his "sink" on those pitches has improved. Tell me if I am seeing that right, or if I'm completely out of the park, lol. I'm really new to this.
2010 - -2.0 4.5
2011 - .1 4.2
2012 - .5 3.2
Yeah, his cutter was the only "positive" pitch he had last year. He threw it more in 2011 than 2012, but it was better in 2012 than in 2011. It is getting more sink and less run (which is what you want with a cutter).
