The Count Takes The Mound

Danks on his conversation with Nolan Ryan:

[Scott Merkin]

"He told me two main things that I still remember. If you want to develop arm strength and throw better, you have to throw often. There are too many times where you think, 'I don't want to throw today,' because your arm is a little sore. But he said keep throwing -- obviously not to the point of blowing it out. He also said that being a first-round guy, the team was going to give me every opportunity to make a good impression and make the club, so be ready."
