Relief Pitcher | St Paul Pride
Though Mote can't just blow the ball by hitters, he has some giddyup on his fastball. Because he can't overpower hitters, Mote has to fool them instead. He tends to work slowly when in a jam, which just makes his problems worse by lulling his fielders to sleep. He attacks lefties and righties with similar success.
Defense & Hitting
Basestealers rarely test him. He tends to fall off slightly to the first-base side of the mound, making him vulnerable to bunts toward third base. He makes up for that minor flaw by being aggressive in fielding his position. Mote is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Mote has some pop in his swing.
