MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – P.J. Walters was not on the Twins radar as a starter coming into the season. But all of a sudden, he’s become a reliable option.
Walters has been a hint of a silver lining in a decimated starting pitching rotation – mainly because he finds ways to get the opponent out.
“My plan is to go out there and attack them. Make them hit it, and don’t want guys to build my own jam…if I keep making them hit it, and defense plays good behind me, then we should be fine,” said Walters.
Because of his work ethic and accuracy on the plate, he’s been able to take center stage in the clubhouse in the post-game, working his way back to the spotlight of the big leagues.
And Walters is doing it by not overpowering people, but by beating people.
“You gotta locate your pitches, change speeds, and kinda keep the guys off balance a little bit,” he said.
