Key was one of the premiere control pitchers in the game with a goodstrikeout-to-walk ratio over most of his career. His fastball was notparticularly speedy, but was often effective as he could spot it on bothcorners of the platealthough when his throw went high, opponents fared well.He also possessed a fine backdoor slider. He had a very good pickoff move tofirst base, which he notably demonstrated in Game 4 of the 1992 World Series bypicking off Otis Nixon, one of the game's premiere base stealers at the time.(During his windup his right knee was bent so that his right foot did not crossthe rubber and he could throw to first base without incurring a balk).
Key tended to give up more than his share of home runs evenwhile holding his opponents' on-base percentage to a low level. He wasinjury-prone with significant down time in 1988, 1989, 1990, 1995, 1996 and1998. Key has had Tommy John surgery to repair his injured arm.
