League to Squint Harder to Avoid Blown Saves

Mariners reliever Brandon League, after picking up a loss in his last four appearances, vowed today to squint extra hard in an effort to improve his effectiveness as closer.

Brandon League uses splitter as his "last resort" pitch

Geoff Baker asks Brandon League why he doesn't throw that unhittable pitch more often. Last year, League apparently had trouble spotting his two-seam fastball (sinker) which made him use the splitter more (the stats have been well documented). So why did he go splitter-crazy in Sunday's game vs. Cincinnati? "That was a last resort,'' he said with a laugh. "They couldn't score there or it was a tie game. I had to get a strikeout.'' League's fastball currently sits 1.4 runs above average vs. 3.1 below average last year. Guess we'll see how this goes.
