SHARE Video: Hector Noesi strong in first Cactus League start

Hector Noesi didn’t have to fight for a roster spot when he arrived at Camelback Ranch this spring.

Even so, the right-hander said he tries to maintain the mentality of a player striving to earn his keep with the team. That mindset was on display in two strong innings against the Mariners in his first Cactus League start.

Noesi retired all six batters he faced, getting four groundball outs and two flyouts.

“I never feel secure,” Noesi said. “I always try to do my work and feel like I’m competing to be better. I think that’s mental stuff, because sometimes if you feel too comfortable things change.”
