“Right now, the life on the ball feels better than it did at the same point last year and maybe the year before, and I’m excited about that,” said the 31-year-old Chris Young, who made just 18 starts (including four last season) for the Padres over the previous two years due to shoulder injuries. “Mechanically, I’m farther ahead right now than I’ve been the last couple of years. I know that. I can see the differences, and part of that is the life on the fastball.
“But I’m not satisfied with it. I still think there’s a lot of room for improvement and the ceiling’s still a lot higher than even where I am right now.”
