You've seen BP every day. … [Outfield coach Wayne] Kirby has the outfielders throw to the bases every day, throw to a target. A lot of guys don't do that. That's why you see guys arm strength decrease as their careers go on, because they don't maintain it by throwing. It's just become part of the ritual. And the good news is the team and players are getting a return for it."
