Charlie Furbush: A pal in the 'pen
Charlie Furbush of South Portland is preparing to repeat a strong season in the Seattle bullpen.

By Tom Chard

Major league spring training is a time for players to work on their games, be it pitching, hitting or defense. And above all, stay healthy. The goal is to have everything ready by opening day.

Charlie Furbush of South Portland is working toward that. The Seattle Mariners' left-handed reliever knows the daily work under the Arizona sun could bring strong results.

"It's all about getting ready for opening day in Oakland," said Furbush from Peoria, Ariz., where the team trains.

Baseball: Furbush embraces his role with Mariners
By Don Coulter, Special to the Sun Journal

CHICAGO — Sometimes it’s best to keep things simple. Familiar.

Take Seattle Mariners pitcher Charlie Furbush. The former South Portland High and Saint Joseph’s College star spent the winter back home in Maine, working out at the same indoor baseball facility where he spent countless hours as a teenager.

Even Furbush’s approach to throwing a baseball has become simpler – with a more familiar motion from one pitch to the next. It’s helped him to become one of the most dependable left-handed relief pitchers in the American League

“Eliminating the full wind-up and going solely from the stretch has allowed him to be a lot more consistent.”

The results were like day and night compared to Furbush’s rookie season.

In 2012, he had a 5-2 record with a 2.72 ERA in 48 games out of the Seattle bullpen. He averaged better than a strikeout per inning and held opponents to a .174 batting average. Left-handed batters hit .147 against Furbush, the third-best mark by an AL reliever last year. He also was one of six Seattle pitchers who combined for a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers in June.
