HOW A'S PITCHER SEARS USED PANDEMIC TO FURTHER HIS MLB CAREER




JP Sears made the most out of the COVID-19 pandemic. A minor-league pitcher at the time, Sears didn’t compete in any games during the infamous shortened 2020 MLB season, but was sure to stay busy in the hypothetical lab. In the latest episode of “All A’s,” the 28-year-old lefty detailed his development during the pandemic to NBC Sports California’s Brodie Brazil.

“So, I didn't play that year,” Sears told Brazil. “I tell a lot of people that, you know, obviously, COVID was a bad thing as far as the virus, but as far as the time off for me, it made me a lot better. Like, I got to be a much better baseball player in that time. I worked with some guys that helped me out a lot. I really -- I feel like I used a lot of time to get my arm a little bit better. In 2019, It wasn’t in the best shape. I went into the 2021 season feeling better than I ever have. And so I, I just used that time to get a lot better and work on my mechanics.
