Darrell Rasner injured his adductor muscle during spring camp and has been working his way back from the injury. On Saturday he threw thirty-one pitches to Wataru Nishimura and allowed two could-be hits during pre-game batting practice.
"I faced a batter for the first time this year and it felt great. It was also good that I was able to throw strikes. I am still working on my off-speed pitches though. I need to work on my curve a little more," said Rasner.
