Blazek back where he was five years ago

Rounding out the posts for Tri-City's Opening Day is an article on pitcher Chris Blazek's return to Tri-City - where he started his career five years ago after being drafted in the 23rd Round in 2005.

Blazek:
“It’s tough. You don’t ever want to be back where you were five years ago, but it’s an opportunity...

...Sometimes, you think you’ll never throw in a game again. When I first started throwing off a mound, I didn’t know if I could do it. But your arm responds and you keep at it. I can still spot the fastball. That’s not a problem; it’s getting the feel back, just getting use to it again.”
