Contreras will be sporting a new look tonight. He and Coop have been working on throwing from the 3/4 arm slot since he mistakingly threw from that angle in Cleveland. Apparantly it felt good even though he did not have good control so coop tweaked it up a little and he is adding it to his repitoire. That gives Jose about 10 pitches to choose from at any given time.
This guy is a monster!

Hopefully his velocity will also be back to its original form. He was only hitting 90 or so in his last start. Me thinks he will be back to his 93-96 in todays warm weather.

While I'm not totally opposed to this, I saw nothing wrong with his repertoire from the All Star break until now.

Reminds me of a kid in Little League who had a fastball no one could hit, but lost a couple games pitching because he was obsessed with trying to throw curveballs.

Of course, I'll defer judgment until we've seen this in a few games.
