Hope all is going well. I have videos of two pitchers I have seen and been impressed with this past year. Both are undersized pitchers but seem to get the most out of their bodies. Wanted to see if there's something you see in their respective deliveries that could help myself and other developing pitchers that follow your posts.

The first is RHP Brett Merkley, a pitcher I pitched against in the Prospect League this past summer.

The second is of Tim Collins, a student of Eric Cressey Performance. Tim is a 5'7'' LHP who is on the fast track through the Blue Jays organization

     Thanks again,

Brad,

Thanks for bringing these pitchers to my intention. I put together an analysis of their deliveries. Let me know what you think!

Brent,

Hello.  Have followed your site for a period of time now.  Really like your approach.

My thoughts on the pitchers….and I believe you allude to it a bit more on the rightly…but the things I would change about them is where their heads are moving to.  At the 9:20-46 point on the tape i see the lefty’s head and trunk slide off to the right if your behind the pitcher. 

Granted at 5’7″ I beleive that some of this is due to trying to get more due to their sizes.

Your thoughts?

Regards,

Joel

Joel,

Good point. Like I said in the video if we had a side angle then issues like this would be easier to see. My approach on the head is that at release, it can be over the glove side if there is balance and if momentum is not being pulled with the head. You will see with guys like Tim Lincecum and Feliz Hernandez at release their heads are off to the glove side but they are still balanced.
