Thu, 14 Feb 2013 16:57:41 -0800
San Francisco Giants SP Barry Zito isn't messing with his mechanics or making any drastic changes to his delivery this spring like he has in years past. He started throwing off a mound twice a week in early January this year and has thrown off a mound eight or nine times before Thursday, Feb. 14. "It's evident he put in a lot of work in the offseason," manager Bruce Bochy said. "What goes with that is confidence. He's coming off a fantastic year. Before that, he'd gone through ups and downs and when you have adversity you work on things. He found himself last year with his delivery and he's carried that into this spring and he's throwing the ball with a lot of confidence."
