I like how you are more upright and still holding your front shoulder back through your stride.  I do wander if your arm slot is the most efficient for this delivery and your older one.  Have you ever tried a low 3/4 arm slot?  It looks like your trunk has a different angle of rotation than your arm slot.  Sometimes if you use a low 3/4 in your head, you can get a big gain in overall feel for your losseness.  If I were there, and this was a bullpen, I would recommend a low 3/4 arm slot to take some stress off of your follow through.  I would be looking for a greater sense of ease in the effort that you put into your arm through the slot.  I see that you really want to come from on top, and that your elbow gets a little high.  I would recommend coming from what might seem like a low like too low arm slot, because it might seem low to you based on your predisposed ideas of what low is but in fact itmight be perfect.  If I were there, and it looked too “weird” for too many pitches I would immediately recommend you to your current delivery.  I would still advise you to play with a lower arm slot while you warm up and play catch, unless it seemed to be fruitless to you.

Greg and Kevin,

90 to 100 degrees of abduction is ideal for wrist speed. A low 3/4 as you refer to could cause him to be more rotational. I recommend you get your glove side up higher this could counter act the elbow getting as high.

Check out how Felix Hernandez uses his glove side. 

 

He still has a “low 3/4” arm slot here it just looks slightly higher because of his shoulder tilt.

You’re right.  A higher glove side into landing is more ideal, and both would be perfect.
