Ryota Igarashi getting a better feel for the ball

Ryota Igarashi appears to be getting a better handle of a new kind of fork.  Seems the new fork has a lot more movement and is quite different to what he was throwing in Japan.  And from the sounds of the article, it appears as though Igarashi can control just how much the ball drops based on how he grips the ball.

He also told reporters that while the harder mounds has made it easier for him to throw, they have also make him tired a lot more quickly.

Igarashi plans to hold his 4th bullpen session on the 27th.
