What is a simulated game?

Postby Philliebuster » Wed Aug 10, 2005 9:50 pm

When a pitcher is rehabbing, they pitch a simulated game....no batters? Machines? Robots? D-rays? Do they pitch to anyone? And does the simulated game always come before a rehab start.

Yeah they pitch to batters. It's not necessarily a full lineup, there may only be 4 hitters for example. Nobody usually runs the bases, one of the coaches will score it the way you scored stickball/wiffleball as a kid when you didn't have enough men.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

it is what kevin brown pitches every time on out on the mound. In his case, though, it's the injuries that get simulated !+)

Halladay has pitched a few to get back into shape, and they showed some highlights of them. The Jays brought on a couple of their base coaches ( who were former hitters) to hit agaisnt Halladay, and their backup catcher.

Curt Shilling pitched a simulated game when he was coming back from his ankle injury. Kevin Youkalis hit a homerun off of him and he didn't hear the end of it.

In a Seattle paper, they mentioned Ryan Franklin pitched a simulated game, with 5 M's players being the batters. They were saying he did a great job, allowing just 2 hits.

I'm thinking, 'who decides if they are hits or not, there are no fielders and nobody runs it out?'

If they were Seattle hitters, then it was probably real easy to decide. The ones that actually reach the outfield were hits.
