Philadelphia Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee said RP Phillippe Aumont is dealing with mechanical flaws that have dropped his velocity. His fastball is averaging 94 mph this year compared to 96 mph last season, and the team is also frustrated with the lack of groundballs he's inducing. "He believes in what he's doing is going to work. You need belief in what you're doing, but at the same time I think there's more upside if he gets lengthened out a little bit. I don't mind headstrong guys. If you don't believe in what you're doing, you're not going to be successful. On the other hand, you have to have some self evaluation to see what's working and what isn't working," Dubee said.
