Scott Baker missed all of 2012 following Tommy John surgery then experienced what he called a “pretty major setback” that limited him to three games at the end of last season.

Now he believes the health issues are behind him as he tries to make the Mariners’ rotation.

“It’s really nice to actually come into a spring training and feel well,” he told 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Bob and Groz” on Tuesday, “and I feel like I’m kind of getting back to my old self.”

That would be a good thing for the Mariners, and not only because of the fact that Baker, 32, averaged 11 wins during the five seasons before his elbow surgery. As Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby discuss in the video above, Seattle’s rotation could use a reliable pitcher given all the questions marks it’s currently dealing with.
