Q: You had just turned 18 when the Brewers drafted you. Would you say the adjustment to pro ball was made more difficult given your young age?Click through for all of it, including Jeff Isom's take on Garfield.
A: Playing the game every day is definitely a big step, and it takes a toll on the body. I signed early last year and went to Helena and played a short season there the whole season. And that was actually good for just getting used to the physical demands. So coming into this year, I knew how to get in shape and take the toll better. The mental part is a different story. Learning the difficulties of having to bat every day and going 0-for-four (one game) and then three-for-four (the next). That's going to be a tough situation to handle.
