by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Changeup behind Ervin Santana's latest surge


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2014) Braves pitcher Ervin Santana has been utilizing his changeup a lot more this season.

Santana has gotten off to an incredible start, posting a 0.86 ERA in three starts. A big part of it has been his increased usage of the change. From 2007 to 2013, Santana used the pitch just 5.04 percent of the time, according to BrooksBaseball.net. That figure has jumped to 18.82 percent in 2014. 

The pitch has also been incredibly effective. Santana's managed a 25.93 percent whiff rate thus far with the pitch, the highest rate among all his pitches. Santana has typically relied on a slider for strikeouts, so adding another effective pitch could signal a slight improvement over the course of the year. 

The main benefit of the changeup is the ability to throw it to opposite-handed hitters. Lefties have typically performed better against Santana over his career, but the changeup has held them to just a .171 average over his first couple starts. 


Ervin Santana stays hot in win vs. Mets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Braves pitcher Ervin Santana remained at the top of his game Saturday, giving up just one earned run on six hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out seven in his team's 7-5 win over the Mets.

Santana (2-0) has exceeded expectation in Atlanta so far, giving up a total of two earned runs in 21 innings while posting a 24:4 K:BB ratio. The Mets scratched out a run in the first inning then were held scoreless by Santana for the next six innings before he was removed. He'll get his next start Friday or Saturday against the Reds, depending on how the Braves decide to work the pitching schedule with Mike Minor ready to return.


Mike Minor likely to make season debut Friday or Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Braves pitcher Mike Minor is likely to make his season debut on Friday or Saturday, depending on how many days of rest the team decides to give Ervin Santana, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Minor is scheduled to make his final rehab start with Triple-A Gwinnett this Saturday as he recovers from a sore shoulder. Santana is on the mound for the Braves Saturday. The team doesn't play Thursday, so one of the two pitchers is going to have a full week off between starts.
