Phillies pitching prospect Zack Segovia continues his rehab process, moving closer to getting back…
Zack Segovia's Rehab Journal: All's Well
My throwing routine is up to 210 feet now and actually, I was throwing 240 for a few throws the other day. Even at 240, I was able to throw some over guys heads. Another week of long tossing and I'll get to make a few throws off the mound in the bullpen. That's going to be awesome.
I already know that I'll be going to the Florida Instructional League this fall. One of the nice things about that is that I'll get to actually be part of a team again. Right now, I'm technically on the Clearwater roster, but I don't work out with the team or travel with them or anything, so it's tough to feel like I'm really a part of things. This fall, I'll be working out with the Florida Instructional League guys and doing all the things that a regular member of the pitching staff would do, with one possible exception; pitching in games. For now, the plan is that when my turn to pitch would come up, I'll either throw live batting practice or do bullpen sesssions. If all of that goes well, I might get into a game late in the FIL season.
I lost one of my roommates this week. Ryan Hutchison was sleeping on my couch while he was pitching for Clearwater, but he'll have to find a new couch now, since he got called up to Reading. Hutch is a good guy and I'll miss having him around, but it's a great opportunity. My other roommate - Cole Hamels - will be heading to the Arizona Fall League this fall, so he'll be gone too. The place will seem really empty.
I don't know if any of you are into video games, but if you are, NCAA Football 2005 is so cool. Cole and I play three or four games a day against each other. He insists on taking USC, so he's tough to beat. I've been taking Texas lately and I almost beat him with Arizona State the other day. I'm normally a pretty calm kind of guy, but that game gets me pretty psyched. It's a great way to pass some time.
Well, that's about all that's happening for right now. Like I said, things are going great with the rehab. I'll keep you posted on anything else that happens. If you have any questions or comments for me, you can e-mail me and I'll try to answer your questions in an upcoming article.
