|New pitch yielding results for Carter Capps|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(4/9/13) Mariners reliever Carter Capps has had success with a new pitch early, MLB.com reports. He has been throwing a hybrid slider/cutter from a similar three-quarter arm slot with his fastball in the low-80s.
The right-hander struck out two with the pitch during his outing against the Astros and is sporting a 2.08 ERA through four appearances. He also has seven strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings.
"Last year, I'd throw eight or nine fastballs in a row, then I'd throw a curve, I'd struggle with it, and then I'd throw another eight or nine fastballs," Capps said. "But this pitch is working better. It's pretty effective throwing out of the same window [as the fastball]."
|Carter Capps sharp in first 2013 appearance|

(4/3/13) Mariners reliever Carter Capps was sharp in his first relief appearance of 2013 Tuesday against Oakland. The 6-foot-5 righty threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings with one hit and one walk against a strikeout.
If Tom Wilhelmsen were to lose the closer's role in Seattle -- whether by injury or ineffectiveness -- Capps may be next in line. Capps' velocity was merely in the 92-95 mph range Tuesday night, but he's capable of touching triple digits and pairs it with a sharp curveball -- the pitch used to strike out Yoenis Cespedes. Capps will be a reliever worth watching as the season goes on.
|Carter Capps 'falling in love' with his slider|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/23/13) Mariners reliever Carter Capps has been "falling in love" with his slider this spring, according to the Seattle Times.
"I know that at 1-0, I can come back with a slider and almost steal a strike," he said. "Guys are hunting my fastball so hard, especially on fastball counts. It’s not even a thought in their mind, so it definitely helps. It speeds up (the look of) my fastball a little bit, so that helps it out, too."
The report also indicated that manager Eric Wedge has confidence using Capps, who has struck out seven of the last nine batters he faced.
|Hard-throwing Capps opens eyes|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(2/14/13) Mariners relief pitcher Carter Capps is trying to make an impression in spring raining, after lighting up the radar gun in a late-season call up last year. Mariners manager Eric Wedge came away impressed with the 22-year-olds bullpen session Thursday, praising Capps intensity so early in spring training. "He got [catcher Kelly] Shoppach's attention early on,' Wedge told reporters. "Thats who he is. He's a big strong kid who throws hard. According to numerous reports, Capps stood out among the players who worked out Thursday.
