Cleveland Indians SP Ubaldo Jimenez has spent several weeks working with pitching coach Scott Radinsky to correct problems with his delivery and said it's getting to the point where he doesn't even think about his mechanics as he's pitching. "Radinsky continues to tell me he is making progress," manager Manny Acta said. "We can see him repeating his delivery and not being so herky-jerky, which helps him. When he's smooth in the back end of his delivery, the velocity is there. This guy sat at pretty much 95 mph (last Sunday). If you're throwing strikes at 95 mph, you don't need to throw 99 to get people out, 95 is pretty good."
