"The mantle of the most unhittable pitch in 2006 goes to the slider of Fernando Cabrera. Cleveland's young reliever recorded a Whiff Rate of .652 on that breaking ball, and, if you think that's a fluke, think again. Had Cabrera qualified the year before, 2006 would have been the second consecutive season his slider led the league. In 2005, Cabrera posted an eye-popping Whiff Rate of .762, though in limited action (42 swings). Interestingly, Cabrera only threw his slider in the strike zone 28.6 percent of the time, well below the major league average of 41.6 percent. In other words, he makes the pitch unhittable with a late bite that places the ball outside the plate or in the dirt much of the time. He's getting two innings per appearance, but he only has three appearances so far. Use him in AL-only leagues."
"Joe Borowski was charged with his first blown save after giving up a run in the ninth Wednesday against the Rangers.
Borowski walked the first batter he faced, and after a stolen base, he gave up a game-tying double to Michael Young with two outs. The showing lowered Borowski's ERA to 9.90 in 10 innings this season. The Indians may not want to go to someone younger after what happened with Fausto Carmona last year, but they're only going to be able to stick with Borowski for so long with the way he's performaed. Rafael Betancourt appears long past the stage at which he'd collapse if thrown into the closer's role. One more blown save could lead to a change."
