From Hal McCoy. Interesting.
http://www.daytondailynews.com/blogs...new_path.html/SALT RIVER AT TALKING STICK, Ariz. — Adam Eaton, Arizona’s leadoff batter Monday against the Cincinnati Reds saw something he’d never seen when Johnny Cueto threw him a mysterious-looking pitch.
Eaton jerked his head up after the ball whistled by, looked at Cueto and said, “Nice pitch. Nice cutter, man.”
A cutter? It’s a pitch Cueto has worked on since last mid-season, but hasn’t used much in games. He is about to spring it on National League hitters this year and Eaton received a prelude and gave it five stars.
“Not only is it a good cutter, he throws it hard,” said former Reds pitching star Mario Soto, who witnessed it first hand Monday. “He’s very happy with it. It is working real well and it gives him another pitch in his repertoire.”
