Pirates' Mark Melancon earns second save Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates closer Mark Melancon picked up his second save Sunday, giving up one hit in a scoreless ninth inning to finish off his team's 5-2 win over the Brewers.

"I know … strange, huh?" Melancon said to MLB.com. "But there really isn't an adjustment to make because every time I go in there, I treat it as a save situation, no matter what the score is."

Melancon has had his issues over the first two weeks, but he was able to work quickly Sunday, picking up a save after throwing just eight pitches.

"I don't really pay a whole lot of attention to velocity," said Melancon. "It's more about location and results. Velocity isn't something I'm worried about. It's early in the season. Generally, in the past my speed has been slower early -- then it climbs throughout the year."

He owns a 5.06 ERA and 3:1 K:BB ratio in 5 1/3 innings.

Pirates closer Melancon says he's fine physically
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Struggling Pirates closer Mark Melancon has changed his release point and his velocity is down. But he has not complaining about any physical issues.

"No, I'm good," he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

His pitching was not good in his last outing. Entering in a non-save situation against Detroit, he gave up four hits and three earned runs in one inning. But coming off a season in which he saved 37 and compiled a 1.90 ERA with 71 strikeouts and just 11 walks in 71 innings, he will likely have a long leash.

Melancon claimed he was unaware that his release point had changed.

"Maybe it will give me more angle," he said. "It's news to me. I think it's just early. Obviously I'd like to have (velocity) at peak and keep it at peak. I don't have any worries of it not ever getting back. I've always felt like I increased (velocity) throughout the year. My routine in the offseason is always the same."

Pirates' Clint Hurdle to monitor pitcher Mark Melancon's velocity
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle noticed Monday relief pitcher Mark Melancon's velocity was down a bit in his appearance, reports MLB.com. Melancon surrendered three runs on four hits in the ninth inning before finishing off the 5-4 win over the Tigers, but his pitch velocity dropped from an average of 91.8 mph last season to 88.7 mph this season.

"We're going to watch, and we're going to communicate. Concern's not a word that I'm going to use. Disappointed is not a word that I'm going to use," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "I don't think we need to delve deep into emotions. I think you just need to evaluate and have conversations. I think that's one of the best ways to get things done within the clubhouse is when you have a question, you just ask it."

Pirates pitcher Mark Melancon nearly blows win Monday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Melancon surrendered three consecutive extra-base hits to start the inning, including a two-run home run to J.D. Martinez to make it a 5-4 game. Melancon then forced a double play ball after surrendering another single and finished off the game. 

His ERA ballooned to 9.00 in three innings of work this season.
