Seattle believes struggling Rodney tipping pitches

SEATTLE (AP) The Seattle Mariners manager believe struggling reliever Fernando Rodney is tipping his pitches, part of what's caused a significant decline after leading baseball in saves a season ago.

Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said before Monday's series opener with Arizona that his staff has been watching tape and there are some "dramatic" things that stand out and may have helped batters know what pitch is coming from the right-hander.

"Fernando was tipping some pitches. We've got to get that straightened out," McClendon said. "We've got to get him to the point where he's not tipping anymore and I think you'll see him getting back to being productive again. When hitters know what is coming it's a lot easier."
