    NJ according to what I have read he is throwing almost all fastballs, His velocity is suppose to be better than before the injury. The phillies are not letting him throw many breaking balls right now. does anyone think that the slow free agent market has anything to do with slow economic . Or they waiting for Boras to set the market.{I HATE SCOTT BORAS].
