Nationals' Storen relying heavily on fastball to fuel success in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Nationals closer Drew Storen is throwing his fastball at a career-high rate of 33.4 percent, according to FanGraphs.com. While pitch-tracking data labels Storen as a fastball-slider-changeup pitcher, he actually throws a four-seam fastball, two-seam fastball (sinker) and cutter, according to The Washington Post.

“I’m just trying to throw different fastballs,” he said. “Never throw the same pitch twice.”

Storen is enjoying great success relying on his fastball-heavy repertoire. He is 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA through 27 appearances. He is 20 of 21 in save chances, while striking out a career-high 12.1 batters per nine innings.

“I don’t worry about cutting it; I want the grip to do the work,” he said. “Maybe I’ll offset a little bit more when I really want to do it. But the big thing, for lefties, their barrels, especially guys that have seen me before, have sinker barrels.

“Just trying to miss barrels. It’s so hard, especially guys that have seen me, to get a lefty hitter to hit [my sinker] off the end of the bat. I try to hunt for the label with the heater since they’re kinda all getting out there.”
