Just wondering what you thought of this Vanderbilt righty and his mechanics. I have been watching footage of him for the last year and love his mechanics and stuff as a closer. At only 5’11” 190 lb, he is a guy I try to learn from. A great side view of his mechanics is shown immediately in the first link I posted.

Big fan of his delivery. I am actually analyzing him for the draft this year. He does have a little early trunk rotation which gives him some poor hip to shoulder separation but he is very fast in his movements which is his success.

It’s amazing how much weightlifting is so overlooked in baseball. Look at Fulmer’s legs! You can obviously see there is a massive amount of muscle there! I don’t understand how something so crucial is so overlooked.

agreed, I find it freaking hilarious how everyone in the lower levels of baseball frantically looks for the “secret” to velocity, as if velocity is some kind of magical power you can obtain by doing enough bands, weighted balls, or long toss. All you have to do is look at the size and incredible strength of the upper level pitchers to get an idea of how they throw so hard. It wasn’t just “God given’ or “genetics”. Anyone who is built and/or throws like Fulmer, clearly put their time in the weight room and developed their athletic ability throughout their career. Lol, I highly doubt he did Jaeger bands for his mid 90s velo.

Absolutely. Long toss is treated like a “miracle drug” and frankly it just wont get you to high velocity. Even perfect mechanics will only get you so far. I am trying to teach my little brother the importance of hitting the weightroom and its correlation with velocity, but his HS coach doesn’t talk about lifting whatsoever. It shocks me.

Totally agree! It is amazing the support around max distance long toss when you have this kind of science based information on it.

“Long toss beyond 180 feet, Motus Sleeve found 14.4 percent more elbow torque than what goes on during a game” http://www.beyondtheboxscore.c…..nal-league

Hard, horizontal, flat-ground throws have biomechanical patterns similar to those of pitching and are, therefore, reasonable exercises for pitchers. However, maximum-distance throws produce increased torques and changes in kinematics. Caution is, therefore, advised in the use of these throws for rehabilitation and training.

In our nearby High School there has been 5 pitcher arm injuries in just this season alone. There is something wrong there, and the coach is just not seeing it. After reading all the articles on here, I clearly see it is the lack of weight training, the importance placed on long toss, and the lack of focus placed on mechanics.

Frankly, I believe it is more than just our nearby school too. And it is costing kids their arms.
