MANBAN DEBUT: In Kissimee on Saturday, Manuel Banuelos will pitch his first game since ...
"May 20, 2012," Banuelos said, the date etched in his mind.
Banuelos, who turns 23 on March 13, will pitch one inning against the Houston Astros.
Banuelos, coming back from Tommy John elbow surgery, said he is a little nervous about the outing, but in a good way. He is especially excited to find out how hard he is throwing. He has not had a radar gun on his fastball yet. He said it feels like the 90s, but he wants to know for sure.
