News: Hernandez threw his first bullpen session of spring Thursday and will throw at least one more, plus live batting practice, before pitching his first Cactus League game, the Seattle Times reports.
Impact: Hernandez reported to camp weighing 210, down 15 pounds from last year. He said he wasn't necessarily trying to lose weight, but he intends to maintain that weight throughout the season. He said his first bullpen session went great. "I was looking for location and trying to throw strikes and giving my pitches a chance to work," he said.
