slight change in the way he grips the ball has given Pittsley a wicked changeup pitch he didnt have when he arrived in the major leagues All King did was move his hands about two inches farther away

when the Royals got him from the Pittsburgh Pirates over the winter But the 6foot7 Pittsley was beginning to look like a huge question mark fol lowing elbow surgery and an 04 start this year Hes learned an awful manag er Bob Boone said His breaking ball is much much better And hes added a changeup something thats unusual to do at the major league level He made a slight adjustment and then he got back on line He was very very impressive Pittsley 24 picked up his second win in three starts allowing two runs and eight hits He struck out four and did not walk a batter The changeup also helped Pittsley throw three doubleplay balls I had in my mind just to concen trate on each step of my motion and it was he said He changed the grip after his last start in Pittsburgh where he got rocked It made it a little softer and it has a little more movement than my old changeup he said We threw it a lot tonight I got a couple of double plays on it which were Cook ends successful track and field
