by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

“Everything with my shoulder and arm are fine, it’s more up in my clavicle region," Outman said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "They checked my shoulder and that’s all good, structurally good, muscles are good. But I’m just not able to command a baseball the way I know I can and the velocity’s not there obviously. I’m giving everything I have and throwing 85 miles an hour, so I’d like to figure it out.”

Outman is now scheduled to seek a second opinion a specialist in St. Louis.

“I don’t know what the title is, and I don’t really care,” Outman said. “If he’s going to give me an answer and let me know what I need to do to be back to myself on the mound, I don’t care what he calls himself… The most important thing is to get right, because I hope to be an effective part of the bullpen for this team, and it’s obvious I wasn’t being effective.”
