White Sox | Matt Thornton to mix things up
Chicago White Sox RP Matt Thornton plans to mix in a few variations of his offspeed pitches this year, based more on location, to complement his fastball. "My breaking ball last year was slower and it was very effective when I kept it out of the zone," Thornton said. "But (White Sox pitching coach Don) Cooper and I talked about how it stays in the zone if I don't bounce it in there. I'm working on the harder breaking ball and keeping that slower breaking ball in there for the right situations."
Fantasy Tip: Thornton is a weak handcuff option to closer Addison Reed, and he's only worth considering in very deep AL leagues.
