How Chad Qualls got his groove back

Evan Drellich has an excellent article detailing how Chad Qualls fixed his mechanics after a knee injury (that, coincidentally, took place in Houston) and revamped his throwing motion. Luhnow thinks they'll be able to keep those mechanics in place:

We looked at a lot of video and we looked at all the information we have, and we believe he made a few mechanical changes that allowed him to get back to really pitching from his strengths. We should be able to maintain those, so we're comfortable that the success that he had in 2013 is going to be continued.

Check out Allan Dykstra as a potential Rule 5 pick from the Mets.

"Dykstra was the best hitter in the Mets system this past season, showing off a keen eye and punishing mistakes…..In 2013 AA he hit .274/.436/.503 with 22 doubles, 21 home runs, 102 walks and 123 strike outs while driving in 82. He could be taken in the Rule 5 draft by an American League squad looking for some thump at first and DH and he will be hitting his physical peak turning 27 mid-season."
