Morning Read: You might not have realized but Erick Fedde hasn't allowed an earned run in his last three starts. Those starts were against the Diamondbacks, Giants, and Mets. The 0.00 ERA comes with a 2.33 FIP, 25.0 K%, and 0.79 WHIP. So is he doing anything different? Not in those specific starts but overall he does have a 3.33 ERA so is he doing anything different on the season? You'll notice that Fedde decided to use his cutter more and make it his second most used pitch. The cutter is a good pitch and it does induce whiffs while providing weak contact. What makes it truly valuable is the tunneling it has with the sinker. Both come out looking the same to only go into opposite directions. Check out our live show this morning on Twitch to hear more!
