Tyler Clippard adjusts at Triple-A

WASHINGTON – It took pitcher Tyler Clippard, 37, some time to adjust to new rules at the Triple-A level this year, according to his manager, Matt LeCroy of the Rochester Red Wings.

“Clip started out really strong, then they implemented a pitch clock here in Triple-A and it kind of threw him for a little loop there for a while,” LeCroy told Federal Baseball on Monday.

“He had to throw a little bit quicker than normal, and I think that affected him a little bit but he is back on track. He has adjusted to it.
