Rookie reliever Addison Reed, the organization’s No. 1 prospect, has added a cutter to his fastball, slider and changeup. He discovered it almost by accident while “messing around with grips” in a bullpen session with coach Juan Nieves.
“It feels awesome, so we’ll see what happens with it,” he said. “If I have all those pitches, that’s just one more thing (hitters) have to be thinking about.”
Reed has allowed one run in 4 1/3 spring innings.
Awesome. Maybe Reed can master his cutter and become a starter next year.
PS. You’re freakin’ awesome Juan! You too Coop!
