Every pitcher throws through pain at some point, right? Maybe, but it’s a really, really bad idea. Find out why by listening to Season 3, Episode 7 of The Fix.
Baseball pitching motion troubleshooter Angel Borrelli and FixingPitchers.com founder Joe Janish discuss the recent arm issues with New York Mets’ Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz, and Zack Wheeler coming on the heels of the Mets’ announcing a new “open-lines of communication” between the pitchers and management with regard to arm soreness and injuries.
Angel goes on to talk about why pitchers should not throw through pain, and offers corrections to Syndergaard’s mechanics that could decrease the strain (and pain) being put on his elbow.
In this season’s “Location” segment, Angel talks about how over-rotating the upper trunk can create problems for locating pitches and gives a “how to” for coaches on how to spot this pitching motion flaw.
