How to throw a cutter

Im thinking mabye I should try out a cutter to see if I like it but im not sure how to grip it. One of the articales(how to throw a cutter like Mariano) tells you to hold it like a fastball but put you fingers off center. Sould I move them(or just 1) to the left or the right? Anything else needed to make it a cutter? Any help would is awsome


take your four seam grip, then slide both fingers to the right and then put pressure on your middle finger.

If you have any other specific questions feel free to ask, the cutters my specialty.

K thx for the link. Great Post by the way Bower

Does A cutter hurt your arm in any way.

not if throw correctly

Oh cuz i would like to try one out.

maybe its just me but I think the cutter is one of the easiest pitches to throw with movement


Oh yeah definitely. It’s a great pitch because you can always work on it. You can work on location and the size of the break. It’s such a nice pitch to control what happens. It’s great to experiment because you can throw it hard with late break or slower with big break.
