The Toronto Sun reports Toronto Blue Jays RP Billy Koch struggled in his mound outing Saturday, March 5, prompting pitching coach Brad Arnsberg to suggest a few delivery changes. "At least today he threw the ball over the plate," Arnsberg said. "The other day, he was erratic -- up and down, in and out. He was challenging hitters today. He got out of there in 14 pitches and got his three outs, but of course there were three runs. At least he was challenging hitters and he's at least aggressive in the zone."
