Latest Player News for Philadelphia
Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee said he would like to see Aumont make some adjustments to his mechanics, the Philadelphia Daily News
reports. "He's hard to give a lot of stuff to, because what he's doing, he feels comfortable doing," Dubee said. "Personally, I think he needs more length in his stride. For a big guy, he should be getting out on top of hitters. But you try to do that and there is not that comfort zone, that trust zone. Those are things hopefully they'll chip away at and get him some length, get him on top of hitters more often, throwing from 60 feet at 6-foot-7."
