Wandy Rodriguez says he’s ready for spring training
Bill Baer Feb 9, 2014, 11:20 PM EST

Wandy Rodriguez started off strong for the Pirates, posting a 3.47 ERA through his first 11 starts of the 2013 season. He retired just one batter in his next start on June 5 against the Braves, however, and soon after went on the disabled list with a strained left forearm. He would spend the rest of the season on the DL.

There was some uncertainty about his readiness with spring training drawing near, but the 35-year-old left-hander says he’ll be ready for day one of spring training according to Rob Biertempfel of the Tribune-Review. Rodriguez has been working out at his home in the Dominican Republic.

Biertempfel notes that, because the Pirates have two early off days on April 1 and 7, they could push Rodriguez’s season debut back to April 14′s series opener in Cincinnati.

I think the World Baseball Classic was a big factor in Wandy's inabiity to finish the season. Too much, too soon.... 8-) 8-)

The Pirates could really use a bounce-back year from Wandy. If he's healthy and gives the team 150 innings or more, that could really help...
