Two minutes with ... Royals pitcher Luis Mendoza

In this edition of the quick interview, I talked with pitcher Luis Mendoza about pitching through last winter and his move to the bullpen.


You pitched through the winter in the Mexican Pacific League and the Caribbean World Series. How are you feeling these days?


“When they moved me to the bullpen, my arm was very sore. Now, basically my arm feels 100 percent. I think maybe one month ago I could tell you my arm was a little bit tired. My body felt it. Moving to the bullpen helped me recover.”


Did pitching coach Dave Eiland teach you a cutter?
