Really nice article with what 5 pitchers are targeting for improvement this offseason. 

Palencia, better slider/curve separation, better command. 

Little (Luke):  “Pitch design we’ve been really focusing on getting more depth on the change up which is basically a splitter now. And slider looking to get more shape on that. Fastball trying to get more ride."  And be in physical shape to handle more innings.

Riley Thompson:  Add a sinker, tweak his slider, (bullet "gyro" slider, not sweeper.). And throw more changeups. 

McCollough:   “Main goal being velocity. .... I used the core velocity belt to help with this. I was happy with the results of the velocity as it was 94-96 throughout instructs”, McCullough said. “Everything felt smooth and more compact”.

Noland:  Changup.
