The Sunday Read: Watching bullpen sessions helps Rangers starters help themselves

(Texas Rangers/Bailey Orr)


Nathan Eovaldi made his way into the media room Feb. 14 after the first day of spring workouts for pitchers and catchers to discuss how his bullpen session went and other things pertaining to the Rangers.

One of the questions was about left-hander Danny Duffy, a veteran American League starter in camp on a non-roster deal. He and Eovaldi threw their first bullpens of camp at the same time.

“You know how I love to watch bullpens,” Eovaldi said. “I really wanted to watch his.”

The guy can’t get enough of watching bullpen sessions.

Righties, lefties, veterans, rookies? Eovaldi doesn’t care. If it’s someone’s bullpen day, he’s going to be watching.

But it’s not just him. Guys throughout the rotation enjoy watching each other’s work between starts.

There’s a purpose, of course.
