Wagner Adds Pitch

Marty Noble at, writes about Billy Wagner and how he has added a new pitch:

Wagner worked with that suggestion during the offseason, his index and middle fingers aligning with the stitches on either side of the ball's sweet spot.

His experimental pitchers sunk, as desired.

But when Wagner almost inadvertently spread his fingers wider, a sharper break resulted from the modified split.

"It's not a great, big break," Wagner said on Wednesday, after completing the first official full-team workout.
