Coming To Grips With Dan Straily

This Fangraphs article, about the evolution and specifics of the grips Dan Straily uses for his fastball, slider, and changeup, is a great read.

There's just a ton of interesting info in here, from how many grips it took to settle on the slider he now throws, to being threatened with a fine in the minors if he didn't throw a pitch he was working on 15 times in a game, to how Derek Norris handles it when Straily shakes him off.

Enjoy and comment!
