I have read that he is gaining back some of the flexibility that had hindered his sucess last year at Gerogia Southern. I am hoping he can get back to his highly touted level and even improve from there. IMO, Beck and maybe Olacio (significantly smaller chance) are the only pitchers who could eventually grow into a top half of the rotation starter. I hope Beck has a good year and breaks through threshold of Johnsons and Snodgresssssss of the world.
