Gagne Works with Howell

Erir Gagne, trying to find the magic after 2 1/2 years of injuries, has been working with bullpen coach Ken Howell, who has been studying and comparing game video of Gagne dating back to his glory days with the Dodgers.

“We’re finding that I got into a lot of bad habits and it’s my release point, I’ve been cutting across my body and not getting full extension,” said Gagne. “It’s been a while since I’ve been healthy. I can feel it when I fly open, but it helps when he gives me keys to watch for. A lot of it is thought process — stay back, stay tall, stay on the rubber. That’s what he’s helping me with.” — Ken Gurnick
