Triple Play, May 2: Jimenez, Mortensen, Stewart
–Next time someone questions the value of spring training, reflect back onin the first month of this season. His spring cut short because of the cuticle cut on his right thumb, he wound up on the disabled list after his Opening Day start because of same injury. Now he has velocity back but command his missing. There’s something to be said for pitching in game situations to get ready for the season.
–can throw hard, but the assortment of pitches betrays him. Does seem more feasible as a possible long man/fifth starter? Initial results were certainly impressive. Coming into a 4-2 game, Rogers had a chance to keep the Rockies close enough to win, but before the popcorn was buttered it was 8-2.
–is heating up. Can he be far from returning to the big leagues?
