Red Sox pitcher Anthony Varvaro could be lefty specialist this year
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/7/15) Red Sox pitcher Anthony Varvaro could become a specialist out of Boston's bullpen this season, reports MLB.com. Varvaro, who was traded from the Braves during the offseason, said he feels very comfortable pitching to lefties.
"When I saw that first lefty step in there, it's like a comfort zone," said Varvaro. "I'm like, 'Here he is.' Then the next one, perfect. And then the third one, I'm like, 'Did they set this up to roll this way to really see [how I am against lefties]'? For some reason, I've pitched better against lefties. I don't want to say why I think that is so other people maybe catch on. I don't want to say it's a comfort zone, but I tend to have more success against lefties."
Vavaro kept left-handed hitters to a .149 average in 2014 while allowing .273 to righties. Manager John Farrell wouldn't give away whether he was face exclusively lefties during the season.
"Once again, he was powerful and with good late action to attack both lefties and righties," said manager John Farrell. "Varvaro, I thought, was powerful."
