Astros Prospect David Rollins Talks About His Off-season And More
AJ: What are some things that you feel you need to improve on going into next season?
DR: I need to improve my pick off move and the curveball I’ve been working on.
AJ: Do you have any workout plans during the off season? (Pitching programs, workout routines, etc.)
DR: I train with my pitching coach’s son Ty Washington. He is a player in the Reds organization.
DR: Yes. When I get home from the season I always go and show some love to the coaches at San Jac and see my old teachers from Carthage and give them baseball cards and take pics with them and all that jazz.
AJ: What’s your favorite part about the off season?
DR: My favorite part of the off-season is being home with my family and friends. It’s nice being with the people that have been there for me through my ups and downs.
AJ: Favorite moment of the 2013 season?
DR: Best moment was when we clinched first place in Lancaster (Astros High-A affiliate). Coming together as one big family and celebrating was a moment I’ll never forget and will always treasure that for the rest of my life.
DR: The only one I remember like it was yesterday was when I pitched against Rancho Cucamonga (Dodgers High-A affiliate) and had a line drive hit back at me and I just so happened to catch it. I still play that over and over again in my head. Definitely a moment no pitcher will ever forget. Scary stuff.
AJ: What are your expectations heading into next season?
Thanks for your time once again, David. Big thanks to you!
