Phoenix _ Valerio De Los Santos got a little lost the other day.
The Milwaukee Brewers reliever lives in the Phoenix area, so he wasn't confused about directions while driving to a spring training park. He just didn't feel comfortable on the mound.
"I felt totally lost," said De Los Santos, a high-energy left-hander who is coming back from reconstructive elbow surgery. "I didn't know what I was doing. I wasn't supposed to throw, but I asked (pitching coach) Dave Stewart if I could throw five pitches in the bullpen so I could feel more comfortable. He listened to me and said `OK.' So that's what I did. I think it helped."
