ARLINGTON, Texas Texas right-hander Scott Feldman is hoping a batting practice session Saturday will have him better prepared for his Tuesday start against Seattle.

"I was getting behind a lot of guys and walking guys. That's not the way I pitch so I've got to get back to what I do. Pitching comes down to commanding the baseball so I want to get my command as good as I can." Feldman faced the Mariners last Wednesday in Seattle and struggled with his control. He didn't make it out of the fifth inning in the 5-3 loss as he walked five allowed five runs in 4 13 innings.
