2017 Recaps: This Season Showed the Need For Top of the...

The Pirates had an unusual season from their starting rotation. They had a rare season in terms of health, seeing very few injuries to their starting five. This led to them only needing seven starters during the season. And that number would have been six if they didn’t give Steven Brault a few starts in […]

The Re-Invention of Chad Kuhl

PITTSBURGH — What started this spring as a strategy for dealing with left-handed pitchers has turned into a near-complete evolution of Pirates starter Chad Kuhl. Kuhl came up through the system as a classic right-handed mid-90s sinkerballer that also featured a slider. It’s a fairly common 1-2 punch for pitchers of that profile. The weakness […]

Chad Kuhl Debuts a New Pitch That Could Help His Other...

Chad Kuhl Has His Worst Case Scenario in Pirates Loss to...

PITTSBURGH — Chad Kuhl has struggled getting consistent sink on his fastball for most of the 2017 season. He’s had several starts where everything seemed to work well, like his last outing — a five-inning one-hitter. There have been other nights, like his start May 16 against the Washington Nationals, when he just couldn’t get […]
