Orioles director of pitching development Rick Peterson’s “string” theory of pitching down in the zone

So that string across home plate on Monday? Aim for it.

“What you’re trying to present to the guys is that these are outcome numbers, but if we follow this process and pound the bottom of the strike zone, [the average is] .193,” Peterson said. “And that’s the major league data. What do you think it is in the minor leagues. I don’t have the numbers, but I would think its .125 or .150.”
