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

Winnipeg Jets’ Blake Wheeler becomes franchise’s all-time points leader

first_imgBlake Wheeler’s primary helper on a Patrik Laine tally in Saturday’s 6-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild marked a major milestone for him and the Winnipeg Jets. Wheeler became the Jets/Atlanta Thrashers franchise’s all-time points leader.Ilya Kovalchuk previously held the franchise’s points record with 615 points with the team during his eight-year tenure with the Thrashers. Going into Saturday’s game, Wheeler was one point shy of tying Kovalchuk’s record, getting that out of the way early on as he scored his 10th goal of the season shorthanded late in the first period.

first_imgDavid’s anchor! Set to be brought ashore againA DONEGAL man caught up in a ball of red tape over a simple gesture for his town has won his battle to put an historic anchor on display there.David McGloin was hailed a hero after raising a century-old anchor from the muddy waters off Rathmullan.But within days his efforts to bring it ashore had him caught in a massive legal battle. And at one stage he was threatened with a fine and imprisonment by heritage bosses in Dublin.David however decided to prove who owned the anchor – and set about getting the permission of Britain’s Royal Navy.The six-tonne anchor was made by the company Hingley Hetherton in 1908 – the same company which made the anchor for the Titanic just a few years later.And this monster was used for ships from Britain’s Royal Navy which used the pier in Rathmullan during World War One. David, from the Sheephaven Sub-Acqua club, spotted the anchor two years ago whilst working on helping gardai during a search of the area.However he was threatened with legal action unless he returned the anchor to the waters of Lough Swilly – so he did.“I got in touch with the Royal Navy and I went to the North to see a navy commander to discuss the anchor,” David told Donegal Daily.“He was shocked that I had been threatened with legal action and the Royal Navy has now given me the rights to it.“I’ve tucked it away under the sea so it should be easy enough to get it out again. “So the anchor will be back on dry land shortly and it will be put on display in Rathmullan.“I think everyone will be happy with the decision. Good to see common sense prevail – in the end.”VICTORY!
