The Tigers today hired Rick Knapp to be the pitching coach. Knapp comes to the Tigers from the twins where he was a roving Minor League instructor. The Twins are well known for their pitchers throwing strikes, besting the American League in walks allowed four of the past five years. It is very clear that the Tigers' pitchers had problems throwing strikes this year, and hopefully Knapp can do something about that while possibly harnessing some of the many huge arms in the system.
