|Watson important in bullpen |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(4/22/12) Pittsburgh reliever Tony Watson has done well out of the bullpen this season, reports MLB.com on Sunday. Watson has made five consecutive scoreless appearances, including three innings of perfect baseball in the last two games against Arizona and getting a big out in a big spot against the Cardinals. "I have been impressed by Tony's demeanor," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "Tony has just taken [care of] business one day at a time. He prepares extremely well and is very conscientious in his preparation. He has self confidence and demands a lot of himself. He's another great guy as far as using eyes and ears. His stuff has been good and clean, and his confidence is in a very good place right now."
