Angels Notes: Cam Bedrosian hopes to bounce back with groin issue behind him

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error A year ago, Bedrosian was in spring training, seemingly showing no ill-effects from the blood clot surgery that ended a breakthrough 2016 season, in which he posted a 1.12 ERA. He sailed through the spring and his first six games of the regular season without allowing a run, taking over the closer role.Then he strained his groin, and was out for nearly two months. He had a 5.21 ERA over his last 42 games.“It was a bumpy road right there, trying to get back,” Bedrosian said.He said he could never really strengthen his groin because of the demands of a schedule, needing to be available to pitch almost every day. Manager Mike Scioscia also said that Bedrosian might have lost some of his mechanics while he was out.Over the winter, Bedrosian said he emphasized strengthening his lower body, and he expects to rebound to the kind of pitcher he was before the injury. Where that lands Bedrosian in the bullpen pecking order remains to be seen. They have Blake Parker, who finished his outstanding debut season with the Angels pitching the ninth, and Jim Johnson, a former All-Star closer. Keynan Middleton, entering his second season, also has been projected as a potential closer.“Of course, you’d love to be in the back end, but it’s the same as last year,” Bedrosian said. “Whenever they call your name, you’ve got to get in there and get at least three outs.”MEYER’S ANGLEAlex Meyer, who is likely to miss this season after undergoing shoulder surgery, believes his injury was the reason that his arm angle had been dropping for years. He said even when he’s making a throwing motion in a mirror now, his arm is back to the position it was at the start of his pro career, when he was one of the top pitching prospects in the game.“For years, when I was with the Twins, I was constantly told to get my arm slot up, get my arm slot up,” Meyer said. “I’m guessing I was dropping it because I could find comfort from down lower.”Meyer said in 2012, before his shoulder started bothering him, he had the best command of his career. As the years went on, command and control became the biggest issues to him reaching the potential his stuff would suggest.ALSOShohei Ohtani did not work out on the field at all on Sunday, a respite after throwing 30 pitches of live batting practice on Saturday. Ohtani will have one more bullpen session before pitching in a game, Scioscia said. He is expected to pitch before he hits in a game.center_img TEMPE, Ariz. — Baseball players are loathe to use injuries or discomfort as an excuse for poor performance.At a certain point, though, it’s an unavoidable fact.Cam Bedrosian came to that realization over the winter, when he was able to see that the lingering effects of his groin injury in 2017 caused the poor performance after he came back.“Unfortunately, I think it was a pretty big problem,” the Angels reliever said during the first week of camp. “I tried to tell myself it wasn’t for a long time. But even when I felt OK, there were still a lot of problems with strength and I think that kind of showed last year.”last_img read more

Mahindra Wehrlein Needs Time Getting Used To Formula E

first_img Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on December 13, 2018Categories Electric Vehicle News Wehrlein will join Jerome d’Ambrosio in Mahindra’s all-new line-up for season five after winning the DTM championship and a two-year stint in F1 with Manor and Sauber.More Formula E News Porsche Close To Naming First Formula E Signing For 2019/20 Mahindra believes ex-Formula 1 driver Pascal Wehrlein will need time to adjust to the intricacies of electric racing when he makes his Formula E debut in next month’s Marrakesh ePrix. Formula E: Jaguar I-Pace E Trophy Challenge Videocenter_img He will not take part in this weekend’s Ad Diriyah season opener however because of his ongoing Mercedes contract.Mahindra doesn’t expect Wehrlein to be immediately up to pace, however, citing the examples of Le Mans 24 Hours winners Andre Lotterer and Neel Jani, and is willing to offer the German enough time to find his feet in the all-electric series.“Pascal I think for his age he comes in with one of the most gold-plated resumes in all of motorsport,” Mahindra team principal Dilbagh Gill told Motorsport.com.“At 24, he has won the DTM championship, potentially he could have been a Mercedes [F1] driver.“The moment he sat in the car in testing, you could see that the other guy has got the speed. And now he has to convert that speed and that takes some time.“Every rookie that comes in the championship takes some time, whatever might have been his background.“Andre Lotterer, funnily enough we called him a rookie last year but he comes in and takes his time.“Neel Jani, he’s one of the best sportscar drivers ever, came in and had his own challenges. We have to give Pascal some time.”Gill revealed that he held talks with d’Ambrosio as early as season three and was finally able to strike a deal for the start of Formula E’s Gen2 era.“We’ve been talking to each other for the last few years,” said Gill. “From season three we’ve been in touch and trying to get Jerome to join our team.“This is something we’ve been trying for some time. And we want to continue for one of the better examples of what we did for the two few years was having experience and pace.”Mahindra was forced to find two new race drivers after Nick Heidfeld decided to step back from racing and Felix Rosenqvist made his long-rumored move to IndyCar with the Chip Ganassi team.However, Gill insists that Rosenqvist, who will make his swansong outing for Mahindra in Riyadh in place of Wehrlein, continues to maintain healthy ties with the team.“Felix and Nick have not left the family,” he said. “Nick continues as an advisor and a reserve driver. So he’s going to be race fit all the time.“Felix always knows that he’s part of the family. We needed a driver for Riyadh, Felix was the first guy to step in and jump in and so happy to be with the team. He knows that he’s part of the Mahindra family.” Source: Electric Vehicle News Formula E Season Opener Now Just Days Awaylast_img read more
