He’s posted a 11.25 ERA in four appearances following a stint on the disabled list because of a sore right elbow.

“I told Vinnie when he came off the disabled list, ‘There might be a little rust,'” manager Terry Francona, per The Plain Dealer. “But like a hitter with a track record, this is a pitcher with a pretty impressive track record with the way he competes, the way he cares. I wouldn’t want to run away from him. I just want to help him.”

Pestano’s struggles could be . He was throwing 92-93 mph before going on the disabled list. He was clocked throwing 88-89 mph Saturday.

“In spring training, when guys start throwing, they have to build arm speed,” Francona said. “That’s what he’s doing now. … There are no medical issues. We got him through that. Now we just have to get him back to being Vinnie.”

Alderson isn’t the only person backing the struggling Davis. Manager Terry Collins said he will continue to start Davis because he feels a turnaround is also in his future.

“He’s got a track record of doing it,” Collins said. “I know if we keep getting him out there, he’s going to eventually find it.”

Davis appears to have a formula for snapping his prolonged slump.

“Last year I did some things I probably shouldn’t have done early, like I stopped trying to drive the ball and that was my second month (of struggling) so it just got worse,” Davis said. “Finally, I went back to driving the ball. Last year, I didn’t know if it was ever going to stop. But now, I know eventually it’s gonna start happening. I feel like, I am getting better.”
