Mariners | Carter Capps working on offspeed pitch

Seattle Mariners RP Carter Capps has been relying too much on his fastball; he threw 36 fastballs of his 39 pitches Wednesday, Aug. 29, and manager Eric Wedge would like to see Capps mix in his curveball more often. Capps allowed three runs and four hits to see his ERA rise to 5.87. "It should have been a good experience for him," said Wedge. "He was able to throw 35-40 pitches, but he has to use all his pitches. That was just way too many fastballs. He has a great fastball, but up here these big league hitters, it doesn't matter how hard you throw, they can turn it around." Capps hit 100 mph in his outing Wednesday.
