Pitch Framing Newsbeat

Monday, May 02, 2016

Francisco Cervelli’s framing an advantage for Pirates - SweetSpot- ESPN

The Pirates fully appreciate what he brings beyond his pitch presentation.

“It’s priceless,” pitching coach Ray Searage said. “Everything he does behind the plate—his execution and game calling—helps build the trust between him and the entire pitching staff. He has grown tremendously as a catcher in the two years he has been here.”

But Cervelli still feels as if he has more to do and more “love” to give.

“I feel like I’m not there yet,” he said. “I’m going to keep working until my very last day.”
