Apparently, the Mariners are not letting him throw that pitch because of his age and shoulder concerns. What's up with that? He's also having an issue with the way Johima calls games. In Japan, they call for more off-speed stuff but King Felix needs to just bring the goods.
Anyone else with any info on what Seattle has going on with Felix??
The reason they won't let him throw his slider is cause it puts more pressure on his shoulder/elbow and they are taking it really careful w/ him. It really shouldn't have any effect on how he pitches cause he has never had full or even part use of it before.
I've also heard the same thing about his catcher, which doesn't bother me to much. His control isn't sharp right now and I tyhink that is his biggest problem.
