Received this email from Matt:

“First day went great today. Passed my arm strength test (only took 30 minutes, compared to 3 hours last year), which is required to start throwing, threw a great bullpen, and knocked the two mile out in 13.35.

I haven’t seen it with my own two eyes yet, but seems like everyone was raving about Yorman Rodriguez yesterday. He apparently ran a 6.3 60-yard dash a few days ago and is dropping bombs in BP.”

Nice to know Matt got off to a good start and we appreciate his keeping us informed on the goings-on in Sarasota.
