He's done nothing but pitch great in any role they put him in at AAA. I think he should be next in line instead of Matusz or Arrieta. He probably isn't a long term solution but he definitely deserves a shot.

Looks like Matusz is hurting a bit (hip), according to OH. I have a hunch we've seen the last of him in Baltimore 8-)

With all the talk of the biomechanical magic Orioles pitching development director Rick Peterson is performing throughout the minor leagues, the jury is still out on whether his approach is working with the with the organization?s young pitchers.

Peterson was hired by Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette to help develop the organization's pitching with his unique scientific approach. Right-hander Chris Tillman is the first poster boy of Peterson?s work. He joined the Orioles after building an impressive resume at Triple-A Norfolk. He credited slight changes suggested by Peterson for his transformation. After making his motion more fluid, confidence built after he saw results. Everyone was impressed.


?He had a real good outing and he struggled tonight,? Showalter said. ?He?s done that before. That?s why when guys always try to put everything in a little tight box like where he?s putting his foot or where he?s taking his hands out. This is a lot more than just mechanical things.?

Translation: It takes more to be successful in the big leagues.

Biomechanical can't fix what's between their ears.
