    New mentality sparks Colvin

    MLB.com reports Phillies prospect Brody Colvin is thriving again at Class A Clearwater following his banishment to the bullpen. In seven starts since rejoining the rotation, Colvin is 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA. "My problem the last year had been over-thinking everything," Colvin said. "They wanted me to go to the bullpen to clear my mind. In the bullpen it's quicker and you don't have much time to think. When you start, you are preparing and preparing, and you have a lot of time to think about everything too much. I've embraced the mind-set of a reliever and taken it into my starts. Think less, let my ability take over and throw strikes. My control is way better. I'm just throwing and trusting my stuff. I had worked on so many things that I just needed to step back and trust myself."
