Jason Beck, of Detroit.Tigers.MLB.com, reports Detroit Tigers P Kyle Sleeth has finally found an effective release point in his throwing motion and is regaining his confidence after battling back from Tommy John surgery the past two years. "I've been healthy since the middle part of last year," he said, "but it took me forever to find confidence in my release point, and I didn't do that until the end of the year. I had no confidence in what I was throwing after the surgery. It's been all new from the beginning. I learned how to throw, and I finally got to the point one day where it just clicked during [instructional league]. It became a natural motion." Sleeth was the Tigers first-round draft pick (third overall) in the 2003 draft.
