How Tall Is Cory Abbott?
Cory Abbott’s height is 1.88 m
When Abbott decided to teach himself Noah Syndergaard’s slider, he was a fairly typical college pitcher at Loyola Marymount.
He watched videos of Syndergaard throwing it and listened to him talk about it.
The outcome was positive. Abbott’s Thor’s hammer isn’t as hard as his other pitches, but it’s still a quality pitch.
He became a second-round choice of the Cubs after throwing a perfect game his junior year in college.
Abbott had a successful first full season in the Cubs system. He began the season at Low-A South Bend, where he went 4-1 with a 2.47 ERA in nine starts.
Over 471/3 innings, he struck out 57 batters while walking only 13. He was promoted to High-A Myrtle Beach as a result of this, where he was virtually as good. He went 4-5 with a 2.53 ERA in 13 starts for the Pelicans.
Despite throwing more innings in the Carolina League, his walks were up somewhat and his strikeouts were down significantly (26 BBs and 74 Ks in 672/3 innings), but he kept the ball on the ground better and gave up fewer home runs.
His greatest month was actually August’s final month, indicating that he didn’t tire out from the pressures of a full-season schedule.
In August, he made five starts and only allowed two runs in 27 innings. He was selected the Cubs’ Minor League Pitcher of the Month for August as a result of his efforts.
Abbott has a good changeup that provides batters a different look than his excellent slider.
