"I feel a lot better than last year," Neshek said Saturday, a day after making his first back-to-back appearance of the spring, a perfect 2/3 of an inning against the Tigers. "I kind of feel where I was before the surgery. Last year, there were flashes of 88-89 [mph], in maybe a real good game 90. That was very few. This year it seems I'm doing it at ease, like I'm hitting 88 without putting much into it, and that's the pretty cool thing about it, because last year I was probably about 85-86."
