How difficult is it to teach a player a breaking ball? I say this with the least amount of snark possible. It’s a question I’d like to know.
It’s a question Eulogio De La Cruz would like to know as well. The Padres designated him for assignment today. And it’s a question that intrigues me, because you see so many relievers who don’t have even one pitch like his fastball who manage a long career. But now he has a chance to be going on team #4. His fastball means that it’s going to happen.
But he can’t lock into the second pitch. And until he does? He will keep bouncing from team to team.
Maybe the White Sox can work the miracle.
