I spoke with Nationals left-hander Matt Chico today on his first bullpen session. He’s in the same group as Stephen Strasburg, which he touches on a little bit in our conversation.
Chico talked to me about what pitches he threw and how his arm feels today. He also shared what Steve McCatty and minor league pitching coordinator Spin Williams told him after the session and what refinements he’d like to make to his changeup.
Chico even breaks down what, mechanically, he’s working on and when he will pitch next.
The left-hander said it’s great to be back in spring training and get to see teammates again and all the newcomers.
