Phillies | Justin De Fratus makes mechanical adjustment
Sat, 11 May 2013 11:06:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Justin De Fratus said he experienced a decrease in velocity during spring training because he was working on a mechanical adjustment designed to speed up his delivery to home plate with runners on base. "I got too worked up about that instead of working on it during my side sessions and then letting it filter in on its own," De Fratus said. "You practice things enough it's going to take over. When it came time for the game I should have been more focused on the hitters and getting them out. Not just getting them out either. You pitch to dominate and that's not the mentality that I had. When you're capable of throwing the ball in the mid-90s and then in spring training you're in the high 80s, that could be the result of worrying about other things as opposed to getting guys out." De Fratus was 3-0 with a 1.89 ERA in 13 games with Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season before being recalled.
