SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Pitcher Wade Davis and catcher Salvador Perez were busy exchanging compliments after their collaboration in a Class A Minor League game on Friday.
"Davis was throwing really good -- ooooffff!" Perez said. "Really, really good. One guy hit the ball good, that was it."
Davis, coming off some shoulder soreness, threw three scoreless innings, but raved about a home run that Perez hit on a practice field.
"I think that hasn't quite landed yet, 700 or 800 feet," Davis said. "I think it one-hopped the hotel out there. It was a tank, he's a big boy."
Perez, smiling, insisted he didn't know.
"I didn't see the ball," he said.
