Neshek, claimed off waivers from the Twins late in Spring Training, has something of a rubber arm, meaning his arm is resilient and that he can pitch just about every day.
"I don't know if I can do it every day," Neshek said, smiling.
One thing Neshek has enjoyed since coming to the Padres is that they employ a massage therapist, Phillip Kerr.
"I think I owe a lot to the trainers. ... They've already helped me a lot," Neshek said. "... Having a massage therapist has helped a lot. The Twins didn't have that. The last few years I had to drive to find my own guy. That got expensive."
