Work with him on arm angle when releasing the ball. They did something similar with Jose Valentin back in the day and it did cut down on the errors though he never became a low error guy. With Tim it's more about focus and muscle memory. He needs to learn to stop throwing the ball sidearm when he's moving laterally in relation to first base.
