Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Steve Delabar is heading into spring training looking to bounce back from what was a difficult season last year.
After breaking out in 2013 and getting selected to the American League All-Star team, Delabar’s 2014 numbers significantly fell off. He posted a 4.91 ERA in 25.1 innings pitched before being demoted to Triple-A Buffalo for most of the season.
Delabar’s two biggest issues last year were a lack of control and a decline of velocity. The 31-year-old gave up a whopping 19 walks and hit three batters in 2014. This was a huge increase when compared to his 2013 season, during which he gave up 29 walks in 58.2 innings of work.
