In other forums i have read that a body fat % below 10 puts a starting pitcher in risk of injury. Is this true?

I have never seen any studies on this. I will see if I can find any.

I doubt there would be any risk to injury. Just like any other sport, a below 10% body fat percentage will help, until it gets to the point where it’s lower than it’s supposed to be naturally – and will pose a risk for anybody, not just pitchers.
