RotoWire News: Porcello credits going back to a pitch-mix dominated by his sinker for his improvement at the end of the 2015 season, the Providence Journal reports. "First and foremost, [it was] getting back to keeping the ball down and sinking the ball, especially early in the count," Porcello explained. "Trying to get weak contact early in the count is my strength. That's where we start." (1/27/2016)
