Pirates | Tyler Yates adds two pitches to repertoire
Pittsburgh Pirates RP Tyler Yates has added a changeup and a cutter to his repertoire of pitches this spring, to go along with his fastball, slider and sinker, according to Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I think I've learned by watching other pitchers with less stuff than I have get people out and I'm like, 'How do they do it?,'" Yates said. "You start watching them and you see that they sink the ball a little bit more, cut the ball a little bit more, change speeds better. It's something that I'd like to add to my repertoire, so I won't have to throw the ball 96 mph every time out there."
