Extended Spring Training is now in full swing. When spring training ends most of the players report to a full season team. There is also a number of guys who stay in Tucson to participate in Extended. There are about 50 guys here now and most guys will end up being placed on the short season teams after the draft in June. There are also players who are coming off of injuries such as myself. Injuries are inevitable on full season teams so the players need to always be prepared to take a roster spot on a full season team. I am having a good time in extended. My arm is continuing to get better and it is usually a nice day. The guys down here are pretty cool too. The atmosphere in extended is a lot more relaxed so I am just trying to get my work in, enjoy my time and get tan.
