What makes the pair of pitchers from Toronto & Oakland so similar yet so different?
Friday afternoon, the Oakland Athletics traded right-handed starter Jesse Chavez for right-handed reliever Liam Hendriks from the Toronto Blue Jays. The two seem to be very different pitchers – one coming from the east coast, one coming from the west coast, one starts while the other pitches out of the bullpen.
Yet oddly enough, the pair has had eerily similar, yet opposite, careers that, as of now, have put them on the path to success.
