Coach Farley on Sinkiewicz: "Jeff threw some quality innings last year. His start at Louisville in front of a capacity crowd was one of the best outings of any pitcher on our staff in 2008. He competes well and knows the key for him is making big pitches in pressure situations. If he's healthy, he'll be counted on heavily this season."
