Here’s Footage of Jharel Cotton’s First Blessèd Changeup

The purpose of this very brief post is merely to document the first changeup — a plus-plus pitch according to lead prospect analyst Eric Longenhagen — of Oakland right-hander Jharel Cotton’s major-league career. It’s also to note that all representations and depictions of Cotton’s blessèd changeup must employ the grave accent over the -e-, in the same manner that has been both represented and depicted here.

Carson Cistulli has published a book of aphorisms called Spirited Ejaculations of a New Enthusiast.

If a right handed pitcher can throw a changeup inside to a right handed batter and get a swing and miss, it’s a good changeup. I think that may be a brand named hitter as well.

Hitter is C.J. Cron.
