I've been hearing a lot about the team taking it slow with Strasburg in order to avoid burning his arm out at an early age but I haven't heard the same thing about them holding you back in the minors or limiting your games played. Do you feel that as a reliever you don't need to be protected? Is there a limit on the number of appearances you feel you should make this season?
Arm care is crucial obviously and the Nationals do have all their pitchers best interests in mind. They havent told me anything about holding me back and appearances.
Would you rather close in the minors or set up Capps in the majors?
