PBMarlin Posted July 9, 2005 Share Posted July 9, 2005 Resop's performance bolsters bullpen By Juan C. Rodriguez Staff Writer Posted July 9 2005 MIAMI GARDENS ? If right-hander Chris Resop consistently pitches the way he did Thursday, the Marlins may not need to acquire another bullpen arm. After walking the first batter he faced, Resop retired eight of nine to cap the victory over the Brewers. Four of the eight outs he recorded were via strikeout, a feat made all the more impressive by the fact he only used half his repertoire. Resop threw nothing but fastballs and curveballs Thursday. He also employs a change and recently picked up a slider he has no qualms about throwing in a game. "One thing we knew he could do is throw strikes," said manager Jack McKeon, who watched Resop misfire on just 11 of 38 pitches. "He looked a whole lot more relaxed. He threw consistently 92, 93. It was a perfect time and he bailed us out of a couple of innings to give our bullpen some rest." Added Resop: "You're facing some of the best of the best and when you see yourself doing well against them you build the confidence up."

If the youngsters are getting the job done, the FO will have to look to cut a veteran or two. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
