"Sometimes I get too excited," Carlos Martinez said through an interpreter to the media after his first start of Spring Training on Friday, "... but at the same time it really helps me and really motivates me to get out there and compete."
I think most of us can relate. Carlos is electric. Watching him pitch is exciting. He is an exciting person. And after an offseason of rehabbing and conditioning, he is happy to be pitching again.
Felt great being back on the mound. Ussss #springtraining— Carlos Martinez (@Tsunamy27) March 11, 2016
It is great to have you back, Carlos.
