MLB Teams Wondering How to get Starting Pitchers Ready
SEATTLE (AP) — Even with major leaguers likely to receive some semblance of another spring training to get ready, teams are going to have to be creative with how they handle starting pitchers whenever baseball returns. The last thing anyone wants is arm problems to arise almost immediately after baseball restarts -- whenever that ends up being. No one knows when baseball will start again after being derailed by the COVID-19 virus pandemic. Players want to play as many games as possible. That may mean games into November and December possibly. But they don't want to risk their health. For pitchers, and specifically starters, the unknowns can be unnerving.
