News: Familia (hernia) will get extra work this spring throwing to the bases, ESPN New York reports.
Impact: Familia had major issues throwing to bases last year, especially when fielding bunts and trying to pick up the force at the lead base. After he pitches in Grapefruit League games, Familia will proceed to a back field while still warm to work on his throwing. If he can fix this problem, Famila's numbers could improve on last year's fine showing. In addition, he will work on throwing four-seam fastballs up in the zone to complement his sliders and sinkers and change the batter's eye level.
