Melancon back from dead-arm issue, returns as Giants closer

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Big league pitchers often talk about a "dead arm" period, when the ball does not seem to feel right or act properly.

San Francisco closer Mark Melancon pitched last year with the real thing - dead tissue in a forearm muscle, discovered only during a season-ending surgical procedure Sept. 12.

When doctors began a procedure designed to allow the muscle to "breathe," they found something they did not expect.
