Brian Sanches doing it his way



Here is a nice article about Brian Sanches and I want to highlight a part of it but you really should read the whole thing.

(via Joe Capozzi)

In previous stints in the majors, he'd been obsessed with scouting reports and pitching big league hitters the way he was told to pitch them. One of the first things Marlins pitching coach Mark Wiley told him was that the scouting reports were just a suggestion and that he should pitch the way he was most comfortable.

Sanches promised himself he would do exactly that, and even though he was the last player cut in spring training, he believed this year would be different.

"I think it came down to not trusting my stuff," he said. "In the past, I attacked people with my fastballs in Triple A. But I'd get to the big leagues and try to throw curveballs and sliders. I vowed to come in this year and pitch the way I'd been successful in the minor leagues."

He has done that.

Sanches is "off the page", so to speak, and judging by the results, it is working quite nicely.  I know there was some discussion of his scoreless record at JRS last night, it now stands at 24.1 innings, according to the article.
