Not sure if I'm allowed to post this but its not exclusive content.

Tanaka gassed after a 1 mile run? That's terrible. It makes you wonder if he's got the stamina to make it through a grueling season.

If its one thing that I remember from my pitching days was that we did a ton of running. 1 mile is a joke, not even an appetizer in terms of conditioning. We used to get letters over the summer saying we should be doing 2 in 12 minutes.

Ryu dropped out of his first run with the Dodgers last season and he ended up fine.

I wouldn't read too much into it.

I think the correlation between running and pitching is vastly overrated. Couldn't run well in high school but could pitch for days.

I never pitched... but I think the running is for stamina. To make it to and thru September. The legs are used more pitching than any muscles, even the arm.
