Anthony Rizzo doesn't peek for signs or pitch location, Bud Black said this morning in response to an MLB Network segment that suggested Rizzo may have peeked at the Nationals' catcher several times Thursday during the slugger's major league debut. "He's not peeking," Black said. "It's just how he focuses his eyes." Black discussed the matter with Nats manager Jim Riggleman and pitching coach Steve McCatty, and said they agreed there's nothing to it.
