On the day before pitchers and catchers were to report to the Mariners camp in Peoria, Arizona, Felix Hernandez arrived Tuesday and proclaimed himself ready to improve upon his down season of 2016. Hernandez, who said he weighs 224 pounds after coming in at 207 last year, said he wants to show that last year – only 153 innings pitched – was a fluke. "I've got to prove people wrong," he said. "I feel fine. I'm healthy."
The Mariners opened spring training with the first day of workouts for pitchers and catchers at the Peoria Sports Complex. Mariners manager Scott Servais chats with the media about star pitcher Felix Hernandez and what this season holds for him.
