Irregardless of who they've canned, they've changed the way they are handling their pitchers. It's a start. If he's healthy, he could improve. Not advocating investing anything significant. Just a $1 or a later round pick.
“You have to have that routine in place at all times,” Callaway told Kernan. “We are going to implement some things that maybe they haven’t done before.
“Everyone I’ve been around pretty much walks outside, stretches, plays catch, they do their bullpen. Our pitchers in Cleveland had about an hour-and-a-half routine before they even went out and played catch. They were with massage therapists, then they were with trainers, getting all these hands-on things done, then they went to the weight room to see the strength coach for extra stretching, then they went on the bike, then they went outside and stretched.
“It’s pre-hab. If we can implement those types of things, we have a better chance to stay healthy. It does work. When you present it to these guys, they are going to want to do it.”
