DREW STOREN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Storen finding new method on the mound

Reds reliever Drew Storen knows he can never throw a nine-inning perfect game. So he was more than satisfied with the feat he accomplished during the ninth inning of Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Orioles. Storen struck out all three batters using the minimum nine pitches, known as an immaculate inning.

Drew Storen’s Other Hammer

Drew Storen‘s breaking ball is probably a slider, but for the purposes of this piece, let’s imagine he has a curveball. Sometimes called a hammer, or a yellow hammer, the curveball’s downward trajectory and velocity gap off the fastball serves to elicit balls that pound the ground. Storen also has a literal hammer, designed to pound… gloves. Play the game, and you’ve...

Drew Storen breaks thumb, becomes unofficial symbol of the 2015 Nationals

Ideally, Drew Storen’s 2015 season would have ended on a redemptive note. Instead, it ends with a broken thumb and what is likely the end of his career with the Washington Nationals.

The Pitch That Drew Storen’s Slider Became

When the Nationals picked up Jonathan Papelbon, they weren’t doing so to replace Drew Storen, but they knew they’d be giving him a demotion. It didn’t sit real well with Storen, nor did it sit well with a large number of fans, who wondered what Storen did to deserve getting booted from the closer role.

Washington Nationals: offseason pitching debates

Tyler Clippard In the past few seasons, the Washington Nationals have built up a pitching staff and bullpen to be proud of.
