Ran into Gardner and talked for a couple minutes. He feels good, and is about a month ahead of the schedule originally set for him.

I asked him if they told him how long he would be in Sarasota, and he said he'll move up when his arm strength got back to normal. He said his speed is climbing back to where it was, and is about 87 now. I asked if 92-93 was the old speed and he said yes.

Thanks for sharing Jax. Hopefully he can get his velocity back soon and make it to AAA by the end of the year.

Pretty bad that Gardner is throwing harder than Dave Williams was after just a year off of such major arm surgery....Salad tosser for life.
