Brewers' Kintzler ready to bounce back after injury plagued 2014
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4:13 pm ET) Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler was been bit by the injury bug in 2014. Kintzler was forced to go under the knife with a knee injury last year while dealing with a shoulder issue as well, allowing him to pitch just 58 1/3 innings, posting a 3.24 ERA and 31 strikeouts.
"My arm hasn't felt this good in a while. It feels live," Kintzler said. "I feel like my alignment, my mechanics, is right where I need it to be."
Kintzler also said he wasn't in the right mindset in 2014.
"Mentally, I just wasn't right because I was thinking of mechanics so much," said Kintzler, 30. "I had to go 'around' my knee, and as a sinkerballer, I need to get up over that knee. I would throw one really good sinker and go, 'Yeah, that's it.' Then, the next one, my arm couldn't get there, and it's a flat sinker and a homer. That was so frustrating. I couldn't be consistent."
Brewers' Brandon Kintzler hoping for better health in 2015

|(2/23/15) Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler is hoping for better health in 2015, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Kintzler pitched through a slightly torn patellar tendon last season, and said the issue led to more strain on his arm. "It's a beating on your lower half all the time," he said. "Not many people think about it like that. Your arm has to take a longer path. It’s just not good, anytime you’ve got to change your path."
Kintzler didn't tell the team about the issue until after Milwaukee was eliminated from the playoffs. At that point, he opted to have surgery. While he hasn't been able to run just yet, Kintzler has no restrictions on throwing during camp. "It’s just so much easier on my arm," he said. "Even playing catch – I haven’t been that live in a while to where I can just let it fly."
The 30-year-old posted a 3.24 ERA over 58 1/3 innings last year.
