Pitching coach Rick Peterson said it has been a long road back for reliever Duaner Sanchez, and today’s outing was just another step. Peterson said Sanchez was throwing 90, which is a little off his max.

Sanchez sounds like he is on his way to pitching like he did before he got injured. First time out, he is throwing 90 mile an hour which is good. It takes time to build your arm up to max out the fastball. Looking good so far, keep it up Duaner.
Duaner Sanchez is one of my biggest concerns for the 2008 season(following Carlos Delgado). It is a good thing that he has most of the velocity at this point of spring training. The next question is “Does he have the movement he used to have in 2006?”
I suppose this eases some of the concern, but more is needed.
