He'll be fine once the season starts. People read too much into spring training...especially the pitchers.

Yeah, he actually said that he was happy today because his mechanics were on throughout the game and felt pretty good although he gave up a lot of hits.

It's only spring training...I think he'll be fine. ;-D

i was impressed he battled back and was able to shut them down


I know he only had 14 starts last year, but his minor league stats are awesome. Last year wasn't a fluke. This guy knows how to pitch and where he'll assuredly have some tough stretches, I think those that are patient with him will be rewarded.
