RotoWire News: Wacha and manager Mike Matheny were both highly encouraged by the pitcher's bullpen session Wednesday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. "That's as good as I've seen him in a long time," Matheny said. "Right now, we don't look so much at the end result as much as how all the components look. He looked, to me, as right as I've seen him in a long time. I think he just looks stronger." (2/15/2017)
