More on Jose Veras
Danny Malter, who writes for Ariball.com, sent me an article on Jose Veras today which you can find here. Ariball is a relatively new site run by former Dodgers General Manager Fred Claire and MLB consulatant Ari Kaplan. Anyway, Malter's piece talks about Veras' pitch selection and location among other things. Most notably, the new Tigers reliever has an excellent curve ball with a whiff rate of 38% (versus an MLB average of 26%). His most frequent pitch is a sinker, but he prefers to use his curve ball with two strikes.
