Stronger Leake hits camp ready to go
By Mark Sheldon / MLB.com
GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- It wasn't hard to see that Mike Leake made some winter changes. Sure, he shortened his hair quite a bit, but that wasn't what stood out.
Teammate Yonder Alonso took notice on Monday when he saw Leake head to his locker, one of the Reds' many early arrivals to Spring Training ahead of Wednesday's report date for pitchers and catchers.
"Leake's gotten bigger," Alonso said.
