So, I’m off today…but I will have Nardi Contreras’ comments posted sometime this afternoon.
In addition, I exchanged a few messages with Jeremy Bleich, who is currently down in extended spring training in Tampa.
Bleich confirmed Nardi’s comments that he’s been throwing 35 pitch sides, but did add an important note as well…Bleich has been using all of his pitches; fastball, curveball and changeup. That can only be considered a good sign as the personable young southpaw makes his way back from a shoulder issue.
