Clayton Richard working on arm slot


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2013) The Padres have taken Clayton Richard's disabled list stint as an opportunity to get him to work on his mechanics. Richard, who has been out since May 5 with an intestinal virus, has been working on pitching out of a higher arm slot in his two rehab starts, with the intention of getting more sink on the ball.

"Lots of ground-ball outs yesterday, and he held his velocity into the seventh inning," manager Bud Black told MLB.com. "Our reports from the Triple-A staff and from [assistant general manager] A.J. Hinch, who was there, was that the arm slot looked a bit higher than what we saw through April and the early part of May. So that's a good thing."
