Felix Hernandez spoke to the media following his first workout. It was a pretty light day for him. The Mariners are easing him into it today. He was excused from conditioning, but participated in the rest of the workout. He played catch with long toss, took some pitcher’s fielding practice and went over situational work and then was done.
As for the the interview, he was very candid about his feelings and the emotion of the day. He also discussed the idea of being the face of the franchise and some of the responsibilities that come with it.
