Angels | Ernesto Frieri chats about fastball, saves game

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Ernesto Frieri recorded the save Thursday, May 30. Earlier in the day, he said that his fastball hadn't had the late life and rise, especially last night, that helped him to a brilliant 2012 run. Frieri resolved to keep throwing it, though, because he doesn't have faith in his cutter or changeup and he believes the desired movement on his fastball will come back.

Fantasy Tip: Frieri should have more time to experiment with it. Ryan Madson (elbow) had another setback recently and probably won't return sometime in June, and he won't earn early consideration to take the closer job. Frieri has survived on one pitch before, and the Halos' bullpen depth isn't comfortable enough for someone to challenge him for the role.
