Pitchers with Dangerous New Weapons in Their Arsenals for 2013

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterMarch 6, 2013

It’s refreshing to see athletes work diligently to improve their already remarkable talents. These few pitchers were not content to rest on their already solid repertoires as they come into spring training working on a new array of pitches.

For the moment, the most obvious examples of pitchers digging deep for more weapons are Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmerman, Ernesto Frieri and Aroldis Chapman. Each pitcher is trying to take the next step in their career with a new and hopefully devastating pitch.

Join MLB Lead Writer Zachary Rymer and MLB Contributor Gabe Zaldivar as they break down some of the games’ great pitchers and their need to push the envelope of their talents.

Not that the debate ends with this video. Get in with your thoughts on how these new pitches might fare as well as some suggestions of other pitchers putting fresh new weapons into their arsenal.
