"I don't have numbness and tingling in my thumbs anymore," Beckett said. "I think my velocity is going to come back. I feel like I'm throwing as hard right now with less effort than I did all of last year."

Gurnick also tells us that pitching prospect Zach Lee missed his bullpen session due to a lateral strain. Oh, oh. He also provides some background on Maholm's unique contract incentives.
