Sal Romano looking for shot in Cincinnati Reds rotation

Sal Romano is living up to his name so far this spring and adding much needed flavor to a hungry franchise and fan-base (Sal is salt in Spanish).

Drew Storen‘s breaking ball is probably a slider, but for the purposes of this piece, let’s imagine he has a curveball. Sometimes called a hammer, or a yellow hammer, the curveball’s downward trajectory and velocity gap off the fastball serves to elicit balls that pound the ground.
