Edwin Diaz Newsbeat

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

The making of a modern closer: The meteoric rise of Edwin Díaz, explained – The Athletic

Some nice insight On one player’s development.

Stottlemyre: “This all goes with something I remember my dad (former Yankees and Mets pitching coach, Mel Sr.) always telling me about pitchers. He would say, ‘You never know when things are going to click.’ You work with these guys, have long sessions with them, and then all of a sudden, it’s like something clicks, and it starts to resonate.

“With Eddie, I have seen a guy who carries himself differently now. He has a much better understanding of who he is. That’s big. That takes time. In our eyes, we didn’t know if that was going to come this season or next season.”
