Lyon threw to real, live batters

Zach Levine has some info on Brandon Lyon, who threw 25 pitches in minor-league camp to hitters:

"The weather obviously wasn't cooperating where I could go outside and get in a game situation, but as far as the way my arm felt, everything felt good. I think it's a good stepping stone to the next step. I started working everything in. Fastball, curveball, cutter, changeup.”

"All of his pitches are pretty tight. He threw a couple sliders that he got underneath, but he stayed in mechanics real well.”
