Buttrey credits a new delivery for the success he's achieved this season, WEEI.com reports. "I started going over my head and that allowed my timing to click. Last year, I was fighting myself with my delivery and my timing that the coaches, Paul Abbott and Ralph Treuel, told me to go over my head because it would allow me to gather myself. My timing and rhythm has been the key."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Buttrey spent the 2013 season with short-season Lowell and flashed potential, sporting a 2.21 ERA over 61 innings. After a miserable first start (four runs in one-third of an inning), he was a model of consistency in run prevention the rest of the way. But there's a sense the 6-foot-6 Buttrey should be better. His fastball reaches 93 mph, but he doesn't sustain that velocity, and he managed a mediocre 5.2 K/9. It remains to be seen if he can gain better command of the fastball, as his body matures and he gains experience. Still, he kept the ball in the yard (no homers allowed) and pitched in the zone for much of the season. Alas, he was far more effective against right-handed batters (.188) than those from the left side (.287). His curve is the better of his secondary offerings, but he's inconsistent with it, and the change is a work in progress. Buttrey projects to open the season at Low-A Greenville, which will be a good challenge for him, and provide a better indication of his ceiling.
