Marlins reliever Carter Capps strikes out six in win on Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Capps came on in the 11th and allowed just one hit while striking out six.

"That was definitely my best big league outing, so I was pretty excited about that," Capps said to MLB.com. "I was feeling good tonight. I knew I was going to throw my slider in the dirt, J.T. [Realmuto] was going to block it. He was great back there. Everything he was calling, we were right on the same page."

Capps, now 1-0, also did not issue a walk and lowered his ERA to 1.50 in six innings of work this season.

"I was trying to go out there and go for as long as I could," Capps said. "I knew with our hitters, it was only a matter of time. They've been getting some bad breaks lately, but we do have a good lineup. We finally came through."

New pitch yielding results for Carter Capps


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com

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


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2013) 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.

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.
