Twins | Nick Blackburn made adjustments
Minnesota Twins SP Nick Blackburn made adjustments while pitching for Triple-A Rochester for two weeks after Rochester pitching coach Bobby Cuellar helped Blackburn focus on calming his front side during his delivery. Blackburn was able to throw from the right arm slot and improve his command, and he gave up just one earned run in 15 innings in his two starts with Rochester. "Now when I'm missing with pitches, I'm missing in good locations as opposed to right over the middle of the plate," Blackburn said. "It just seems more natural for me than what I was doing earlier in the season." He'll make the start against the Kansas City Royals Friday, July 20.
