Toronto Blue Jays SP Tomo Ohka is attempting to come back as a knuckleballer this year after teaching himself the pitch while playing in Japan last year. Ohka is on the team with a minor league deal. "It's tough," he says. "Regular pitchers try to make more spin. Knuckleball, less spin. When I start, maybe once in 30 pitches, once in 50 pitches, I throw a good one."
