Mariners Young Pitchers Throwing Hard as Spring Training Begins [VIDEO]

The young pitchers hope to attract attention in spring training, while the staff monitors their progress and makes sure no one gets hurt.

In this video from the Seattle Times, pitcher Carter Capps looks like he’s trying to take off catcher Kelly Shoppach’s hand.

Mariners manager Eric Wedge said he isn’t too worried about Capps throwing so hard, so early.

“Thats who he is,” Wedge said. “He’s a big strong kid who throws hard. You look at effort. Aslong as you don’t see anybody putting themselves into a position to…try to do too much, that’s where you’ve got to pay attention. You’ve got eyes on these young pitchers out there and we have the conversations we need to have with these guys. We make sure they stay where they need to stay.”
