Thanks for participating on our board by answering questions.

How hard of an adjustment has it been for you to convert from a position player to a pitcher? Do you feel that you've caught up yet with those who started out as pitchers? And finally, with your background as a position player, have you ever been used as a pinch hitter since becoming a pitcher?

Hey Carlos, thank you for taking your time to answer our questions!

Do you think it's easier to convert from catcher to pitcher as opposed to any other position to pitcher?

The Cubs have talked about you possibly being a future closer. What would you prefer, starting or relieving?

Keep up the good work in West Tenn!

Could you give us an update on what pitches you're currently throwing and what you might be working on?

How did your position change come about? How long was the decision process and who was really instrumental if moving you to pitcher?

What has been your favorite memory in your young career as a pitcher?

Thanks, Carlos!

Carlos,

Thanks for taking our questions.

What are some of the preparations you go through as you prepare to pitch? How do those differ from being a position player?
