Count on Contreras Coming Back Strong

Jose had a side session in the bullpen today under the watchful eye of Don Cooper. Coop was very pleased with the results. He says that the reason Jose has struggled recently is because he has been getting caught in between different arm angles.
Jose struggled at first last year when Coop introduced him to the low arm angle, but once he caught on (during the second half last year) he was unhittable. The 3/4 delivery was introduced this year, which he hasn't completely gotten used to it. During the side session Coop had Contreras just use the high and low arm angle exclusively, and pitched very well.

Look for a sharper performance from The Count during his next start, against Baltimore.
