I don't think I'm going to need that much [rehab time], because I've been working a lot ... It depends on my hand. I've got to get stronger again, my upper body. But the good thing is my brain never stops. I never rest. I'm ready, I can't wait to come back.
It's sad in some part, because we've been part of the team and everybody knows what we can do. But everyone's ready to go ... And I could be the catcher on this team -- because we've got a team here. The guys who are playing right now are doing a great job. When we have the chance to go back, we'll be better.
I think he was taking a little more time and throwing pitches down ... I started calling a lot more breaking balls too. I always say he's a warrior.More quotes »
