While the <a href="http://www.officialbearsshops.com/shop-by-players-walter-payton-jersey-c-2_18.html">http://www.officialbearsshops.com/shop-by-players-walter-payton-jersey-c-2_18.html</a> Pittsburgh Pirates have prioritized fastballs in years past <a href="http://www.authenticmapleleafsproshop.com/25-james-van-riemsdyk-jersey-c-1_40.html">James Van Riemsdyk Authentic Jersey</a> and the league <a href="http://www.karuran.com/aaron-rodgers-jersey-c-1_3.html">Aaron Rodgers Youth Jersey</a> is becoming more slider-centric, Steven Brault and Jameson Taillon are making their changeups a focal part of their offseason plans.

Brault was asked during the media availability at Saturday’s PirateFest what he <a href="http://www.packersprostores.com/aaron-rodgers-jersey-c-1_14.html">Aaron Rodgers Youth Jersey</a> took away from his major league experiences with the Pittsburgh Pirates last season.

He answered that the changeup is far more effective in the majors than he previously had thought.

“It’s so much better than it is in the minor leagues. I don’t know why,” Brault said. “I think it’s because hitters have a better approach, so they’re sitting the pitch they want to see. So if <a href="http://www.packersprosale.com/aaron-rodgers-jersey-c-1_18.html">http://www.packersprosale.com/aaron-rodgers-jersey-c-1_18.html</a> you can really actually trick them into thinking its something else, [it works].”

Batters hit .190 and whiffed on 15.2 percent of his 79 major league changeups <a href="http://www.authenticpackersprostores.com/ha-ha-clintondix-jersey-c-1_5.html">http://www.authenticpackersprostores.com/ha-ha-clintondix-jersey-c-1_5.html</a> last year.

Brault’s <a href="http://www.nflbearsofficialshop.com/shop-by-players-walter-payton-jersey-c-2_121.html">http://www.nflbearsofficialshop.com/shop-by-players-walter-payton-jersey-c-2_121.html</a> goal for 2017 is to be able <a href="http://www.patriotsprosale.com/brandin-cooks-jersey-c-1_34.html">Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey</a> to throw his change following a fastball in the same spot and to be able to throw the pitch while behind in the count. While Baseball Savant says he threw it 12.3% of the time in an abbreviated major league stint last season, he rarely offered it once the count hit either three balls or two strikes.
