Grant Balfour: I might have been tipping my pitches
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rays deposed closer Grant Balfour has acknowledged that his struggles this season could be explained in part by pitch-tipping.

Balfour owns a 5.45 ERA with 29 hits and 27 walks allowed in 36 1/3 innings.

"I have a few things, and it's been cleaned up," he told the Tampa Bay Times. "You look at the numbers and you think maybe they knew what was coming at certain times. That can explain a few things here and there. I'm not saying I pitched the best, but it doesn't help when someone knows what's coming. It could be an issue. It's definitely cleaned up, so we'll find out."

Balfour pitched a hitless shutout inning against Minnesota on Thursday.
