Towers having a tough time putting a bullpen together

XX Sports Radio: Kevin Towers Interview (MP3)

  • It's tough with the WBC going on to evaluate talent, but it's given them a chance to see some of the lower level guys.
  • Correia has thrown the ball very well.  Josh Geer's velocity is not where it was last year.   Correia and Geer are the front runners for the 4 and 5 spot.
  • There are 4 to 5 spots open in the bullpen.
  • There might be 2 or 3 guys who end up in the bullpen that aren't even in Padres camp.  Towers is scouring the waiver wire.
  • The bonding between Hundley and the pitching staff is important, that's why the WBC is really hurting.
  • Towers tells a funny story about his experience pitching to Garvey's head when he was in Spring Training.
