BOSTON â Thereâs bringing a player up to speed after heâs been out for a lengthy stretch due to injury. Then thereâs the term that Angels manager Mike Scioscia used in describing the heightened state of urgency Chris Iannetta finds himself in after missing 2 1/2 months with a broken bone in his right hand.
âYou can study and simulate stuff all you want, but when you get behind the plate, youâre like that jockey on a saddle,â Scioscia explained prior to Tuesdayâs Red Sox-Angels game at Fenway Park. âThatâs the feeling you need and thatâs where Chris needs the time in order to come together.â
