GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Gavin Floyd has thrown in just one 2012 Cactus League game to date, working in an intrasquad game, a "B" game and Sunday's simulated game in his three other trips to the mound. But with 75 pitches over five innings thrown by Floyd on Sunday, getting up and down for each frame, he feels the appropriate work still is getting done.
"I'm seeing hitters. That's the most important thing," Floyd said. "There's a difference, but at the same time, if you can treat it the same as a regular start, that's the ultimate goal. It doesn't really matter where you are at, I guess."
