One-on-one with Pepicelli

TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with Clemson pitching coach Dan Pepicelli following the Tiger’s victory over NC State Saturday afternoon in Durham.  Coach Pepicelli talks about Meyer’s injury,  Brady’s health and much more!

On Jonathan Meyer:

He has a bruised knee. We know it is going to be really sore this week so we just have to see how he handles everything. We don’t think there is anything structurally wrong so as of now we are counting on having him back next weekend. 

On David Haselden:

He has been doing great. It was a product of him throwing four innings two days earlier and then just what was at stake today. We let him go a couple of innings and then just decided to get him out of there to stay ahead of the curve a little bit. 

On Matt Campbell:

He came in today in a big situation and did it today without a breaking ball. It was big for him. It shows him he can trust his fastball and be aggressive in pitching to contact. All these type of situations I think are good building opportunities for these guys. 

On Kevin Brady:

He is making progress. There is an arm endurance thing we are working on. He missed a lot of time so he is still in his building up phase. We are excited that he could come back today and felt pretty good. I liked his velocity; I thought he had pretty good pop. His other off-speed stuff is coming along in his side bullpen sessions. I think when we can get that stuff into his game at a regular basis then we will know we really have him back.
