Giants | Team trying to get Zito on track

Andrew Baggarly, of The Mercury News, reports the San Francisco Giants are trying to get SP Barry Zito back on track. Pitching coach Dave Righetti told Zito to focus on winning with what he has. He wants Zito to relax more when he's on the mound. "No matter what (speed) it's coming out of your arm, if you overthrow, it's straight," Righetti said. "If you relax, you'll have some movement, and you'll last longer, make better pitches." Righetti told Zito to emulate retired SP Kirk Rueter, because he did not overthrow and allowed his pitches to move.
