Both the LA Times and OC Register did features on the return of Kelvim Escobar. Escobar threw batting practice and said he felt fine other than his mechanics being a "bit rusty". Kelvim was able to use all of his pitches and believed he was throwing in the 90's. Great News!
Nick Adenhart spent a lot of the off-season watching video of some of the greats of MLB. Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemens & Greg Maddux hoping to pick up tips regarding how those pitchers used their leg strength. Adenhart is coming off a disastrous 2008 season that saw him dominate AAA early and then get hammered with the Angels. Adenhart was not able to find his command when he returned to Salt Lake City. At the tender age of 22, the Angels still have high hopes for Adenhart and believe he still has the tools to become a reliable major league pitcher.
