That's one reason why Robertson, who pitched a scoreless inning with one walk on Tuesday, said he feels like he is more prepared for the season.
"I feel like I'm in better shape; I didn't fall down the stairs yet," Robertson said. "I didn't have to sit out two to three weeks. I just feel like my workouts were good -- so far, so good."
Robertson said he needs about eight or nine appearances to feel ready for the season, and he would like to come into a tight jam to face a few hitters. Otherwise, Robertson feels that he has a good idea of what to do to get ready for the season.
"This is my fifth Spring Training, and it's the same thing: You've got to come in and get command of your fastball," Robertson said. "That's key for me. I throw a lot of fastballs.
"Later in the spring, I'll start mixing in my breaking ball, throwing it more, in the counts that I might really use it in a game in New York; same with the changeup. But for now, it's all about getting that fastball command."
