Houston Astros RP Josh Zeid is experimenting with a new arm sidearm delivery on some of his pitchers, which is designed to give hitters a different look. He tossed a career-high three scoreless innings in relief against the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, Sept. 3. Zeid threw sidearm in high school and early in his pro career, but he hasn't done so recently. He is able to throw two-seam fastballs, four-seamers and sliders from the lower arm angle.
