Former Central-Phenix City and Auburn pitcherBryan Woodall
said Thursday morning he was feeling rested and healthy after a long fall season and is ready to report to the Arizona Diamondbacks’ spring training facility in Pima, Ariz., next week.
“I got home a little later this year, but that was a good thing because I got invited to the fall league,” Woodall said. “After that, I took a few weeks off and then kind of lightly got back into it. Right now my body feels good, my arm feels good and I’m ready to start up again.”
Woodall appeared in five games in the fall and had a 5.40 ERA and a 1-0 record as his Arizona Fall League team, the Scottsdale Scorpions, won a league championship. Prior to that, he split 2010 between the AA Mobile Bay Bears and the A+ Visalia Rawhide.
Woodall played three seasons at Auburn and was drafted by Arizona in the 21st round of the 2008 amateur draft. He was at Central on Thursday morning to watch his younger brother, Central pitcher Todd Woodall, and two other Central players sign with Andrew College.
