Tue, 29 Oct 2013 15:00:17 -0700
St. Louis Cardinals RP John Axford has worked with the coaching staff since being acquired late in the season to fix some of mechanics. He had an ERA of 1.74 in his final 13 outings in the regular season with the Cardinals and has a 1.59 ERA in two scoreless playoff appearances over 2 1/3 innings in the World Series. Before the trade, he had a 4.45 ERA in 62 outings with the Milwaukee Brewers. "There's a small specific thing that I won't mention, but it's something that a team that's scouting you will see, since they're trying to see if you're tipping pitches or doing something a little bit differently," Axford said. "They've been seeing it for the last few years, they've shared it with me and we've worked on it since."
