Brandon Kintzler plans to potentially throw more offspeed pitches in 2017.
The spring training cliches are pouring in early this year. As Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com notes, only three pitchers threw their fastball more often than Kintzler in 2016. It didn't stop him from posting a 3.15 ERA in 54 appearances while saving 17 games. However, Kintzler isn't satisfied and cites his health as a reason why he plans to experiment with his repertoire. "Last year was my first year ever healthy in the Major Leagues," said Kintzler. "I've had some success but I never felt like I showed what I could do. And I could never practice much in the offseason, even offspeed. But now that I have that chance with a normal offseason, I feel like I have weapons instead of just my fastball." Kintzler will be the fallback for the closer role to start 2017 if Glen Perkins encounters setbacks from labrum surgery. Jan 18 - 12:46 PM
