Painter has been working on a cutter during the offseason, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

One of the top pitching prospects in the league, Painter is in big-league camp and could push for a rotation spot early in the season if he impresses this spring. He already boasted four offerings -- a fastball, slider, curve and changeup -- but also has reportedly thrown a cutter during bullpen sessions with J.T. Realmuto. Painter delivered an impeccable 1.48 ERA and 0.89 WHIP across 103.2 innings last year, topping out at Double-A Reading.
