Texas Rangers P Michael Kirkman shortened his arm motion behind his body as he goes through his pitching routine this offseason in order to give him better command. "I've really had a hard time in spring the past few years and I don't know if it's that the arm wasn't ready," Kirkman said. "It should be. I'm more ready this year than I have been in the past, physically. My arm should be right there. Totally, across the board, it feels more ready than it has in the past. Arm strength is better than it's been."
