Tri-City's Sullivan: Keeps Fighting His Way Back

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- Tri-City starter Josh Sullivan struggled Tuesday night on the hill for Tri-City but that ordeal seems pretty small when you compare it to all the other adversity he has faced.

"This is the best I've felt in the last three years and I'm just motivated to actually get my career going," said Sullivan.

This is Josh Sullivan's 4th year with Tri-City. But, until this year he hadn't really seen game action since 2007.

Arm surgeries in 2005, 2008, and 2009 kept Sullivan away from where he wanted to be, on the mound. Now, after countless hours of rehab, he is excited to pitch.

"I have pitched about 125 innings over 5 years as a starter so that's really what I have been waiting for is just a chance to go through and start a clean season and have a healthy career from here on out," Sullivan said.

Sullivan's record stands at 1-1 in 4 starts. So far, he leads the team in innings pitched and more importantly, his arm has held up.

"I feel like I still have somewhat of a fresh arm, almost like a new arm because everything in my arm has been repaired at this point. So, I'm just looking for a fresh start and my arm feels great."

After getting drafted way back in 2005, #13 is hoping his luck will turn around with the Tri-City Dust Devils.
