After left biceps tendonitis shortened his stay in the Arizona Fall League, St. Louis Cardinals P Sam Freeman (arm) was instructed to alter his offseason throwing plans. Freeman picked up a baseball and walked around holding it so he could get used to the feel of the ball in his hand. Freeman did this so he could work on a knuckle curve. "I figured I didn't have anything else to do," Freeman said. "So outside of eating, I would carry a ball around and work on the grip."
