Nationals | Ryan Perry excelling as starter

Washington Nationals SP Ryan Perry allowed one run and three hits in five innings in his latest start with Double-A Harrisburg, and he has a 2.31 ERA in 11 2/3 innings in three starts. "In four years of pro ball, I don't think I threw more than 2 2/3," Perry said. "Down here, I need to get my pitch count up, work on my pitches and really feel my mechanics. Being a reliever, going out one inning, you don't exactly feel the repetition of every pitch. So like I said, I told them, I feel like I've got a lot to offer this ball club and I think me starting will help me utilize everything." He has added a cut fastball to go along with a four-seamer, slider, changeup and two-seamer.
