Side angles are better but you are a little slow and late going into front foot with 3X. It looks like it is causing some poor separation and horizontal adduction during external rotation. This means your elbow is pushing out in front of face during external rotation. How have things been going?

Here is a better view.  And I have been doing well…I am the closer on my team, but I haven’t had many closing opportunities so far this season.

Everything looks great except your throwing arm. It gets too high too early. Mainly your elbow. Try to keep it down for just a little bit longer. Do not let your elbow push up above your shoulder when moving into the cocked position. Your elbow is above your shoulder half way through your stride.

The throwing arm must cock just at front foot strike which you are doing but your arm is starting too early so it has to push the elbow high to take a longer path to the cocked position because it is cocking too early. I believe this is causing your throwing arm to start throwing too early which is creating horizontal adduction during external rotation. This means your elbow is pushing out in front of your face during external rotation. We want the elbow to stay back behind the front of the face during external rotation. This supports both arm health and pitch velocity.

Kevin, you need to come down this summer and train with use. Call Eric again.

If you could learn how to freely load your scaps you would throw up to 95 easy.  Its kind of hard to coach, because you shouldn’t try to “pull” your elbows back (like some people think).  You also shouldnt try to pull them down, honestly.  Your load (scap) looks hindered because I dont think you know how to load them right.  It seems like your arm action is nice and loose, like a timing thing you have developed.  Not bad!  Your scap loads probably as a byproduct of good loose arm action, but the arm action of a nice loose scap load has the same and more benefits.  I think Im going to put a video together so that I can explain how to load your scaps purposfully.  Because it is a willed move it is not possible to make it happen without making it happen.  In the meantime, to explain why I think a video would make it easier to teach, think about all of the back muscles involved with loading up the scaps.  Now think about what people think when they think “loading the scaps”.  They think pull the elbows back.  The problem with “pulling” the elbows back is that it has nothing to do with the arm swing.  The arm swing and scap load need to be integrated into one move.  The lateral arm swing is just as important as a good loaded scapula.  Loading the scaps is actually the best way, in my opinion, to have a good loose swing into high cocked.
