Cecconi is due for a warm welcome to the league
Christian Walker hurt as Orioles run past Diamondbacks with 6-run 4th inning
Cecconi said he might have allowed counts to dictate his level of conviction. That is, rather than throwing each pitch aggressively and with “absolute, full intent,” he thought he might have tried to “nibble and nitpick the zone.” “That’s something I can’t let happen,” Cecconi said. “I have to throw every pitch with conviction, no matter what the count. I don’t think I did that very well.”

Diamondbacks’ Christian Walker day-to-day with elbow contusion
“Okay, overall, X-rays negative which is great,” Walker said. “Just a ton of nerve pain hit me in an unfortunate spot, ton of finger numbness and shooting pains just trying to use my fingers, but I think it’s all just nerve related. Like I said, just a funny spot but all things considered, I should be fine.”
D-backs’ 2020 draft class contributing despite atypical introduction
“Even back in instructs that year, I saw Bryce throw, he was doing well. And then I saw I Pfaadt and thought, ‘Man, we got some guys in the first few rounds,’” Cecconi said. “It’s cool that we’ve moved through the ranks together, doing what we can to support each other and help this team win.” “All three of us coming up together and putting in the work and then finally making our debut years in the same year, I think that’s pretty cool to do, especially three years out,” Pfaadt added.
This might have implications for next Sunday’s guest recapper EphBoston, the start time of that game has been moved from 1:10 to 4:10.
