Twins Ace Jose Berrios Trying to Refine Two of His Pitches
The Minnesota Twins season has been put on pause like all other MLB teams due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn't mean players aren't training during this downtime.
Twins ace Jose Berrios is doing exactly that as he is trying to refine two of his pitches for when the season resumes.
According to ESPN, during a Facetime call with the network, Berrios explained how he was working on his secondary pitches.
"Right now, I am focusing on throwing the changeup towards the glove side, which would be on the side outside the right-handed hitter. As it naturally runs for me, it would be on the arm side, from the middle towards the bottom. I want to improve it towards the glove side."
Berrios has a nasty four-seam fastball that he uses the majority of the time, so he is trying to refine his changeup and curveball with this extra time on his hands.
MLB players have had to resort to throwing into mattresses, fences and another makeshift catcher like devices as they practice social distancing.
Hopefully, for Twins fan, these two pitches are refined for Berrios and the All-Star pitcher becomes even more dominant in Minnesota.
