Pitcher Drew Storen joins The Ride with JMV to discuss getting let go by the KC Royals and what is the next step in his baseball career. Drew Storen talks about getting his velocity up on the pitching mound. Drew also talks about what his plans may be after playing baseball.

"What happened since you signed there, went through spring training, and then ultimately got released?"

"My velocity never really crept up like I had anticipated. I was grinding and getting regular work but just wasn't getting the fast ball velocity. especially now, with how the game is, I just wasn't where I needed to be. So when they released me I came home because you know that you have to enjoy the Fourth of July at home in Indy. So I came out here and DriveLine is pretty much the foremost velocity program in the country, so I am just giving it a shot and seeing how it goes."

"How frustrating has this been?"

"It hasn't been ideal. It's been fun and honestly I like to think I make the most of anything. I was playing with a bunch of 23 and 25 year olds. So needless to say I felt pretty old but I was able to help those guys and kind of teach them. You know a bunch of guys that are coming from AA have never been to the big leagues. A lot of people have their own opinions but I can tell them that if you want to have success you need to do x, y, and z."
