Both gave very specific details on what they are working on and why it should lead to positive change.
Hudson is probably easier to bet on. He is a year removed from Tommy John and some neck tightness messed him up last season on top of the grind of first season back from the TJ.
Dusty Blake, perhaps the most praised name during WWU, has opened his eyes to some of the changes he wanted Hudson to make regarding pitch use and tweaking certain things. He's all in on the pitch clock and how it can help him. He seemed really encouraged and is fired up to prove he can be a piece of this rotation, not a piece on the fringe.
DeJong seemed at peace. He's simplified his swing and tuned out all outside nose. No more leg kick. No more head movement during pitch tracking. Just short and direct to ball. Muscle memory over over-thinking.
He also knows no one will buy any of this until or unless he does it in games that count. He gets it.
