Talking to Janish, Volquez Posted by jfay February 18th, 2010, 11:27 am Here’s a little pre-workout stuff:

Paul Janish and Jay Bruce arrived this morning. I asked Janish about the signing of Orlando Cabrera:

“I spent the whole offseason thinking I was going to get a chance. More than anything, it’s a change in mentality. Obviously, I thought I was going to be the everyday guy. Now, I’ve got to go back into the utility role. That’s going to be the role.
“It is was it is. I’ve got to go back to focusing on spring training and being part of the club.”

It was a little disheartening. But, at the same time, if you asked me in November if they were going to sign somebody, I would have said yeah. The fact that it happened so late is a little different.

“Anything to make the team better. We’re all on the same page.”

–Edinson Volquez says his rehab from “Tommy John” surgery is going well.

“I was a little scared the first day I threw. But after that it’s been normal. I threw from 130 feet yesterday. It felt good.”

He’s holding out of hope of coming back earlier than the August projection.

“Some people say August,” he said. “Some people say July – right after the break. We’ll see.”

His scouting report on Cuban left-handed Aroldis Chapman: “Whoa! He’s got a good arm.”
