St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright, who admitted to becoming very cutter-happy in recent seasons, is working on the diversity of his fastballs this spring. "Good, late, hard-biting action – which is what I want," Wainwright said of his cutter. "I'm working hard on my two-seam fastball. To be able to throw both of those is really what I want to do and not fall in love with one and not the other." Wainwright got away from his sinking fastball as last season wore on; he used it just 10.60 percent in the playoffs.
