Arm Action | Talk Pitching | TopVelocity Baseball Forum
August 29, 2012
Brent, I recently tore my labrum due to shoulder dislocation and two orthopedic surgeons who are pretty well known for helping pitchers told me therapy would be the way to go. I tore it in December and have been doing therapy ever since. I started my throwing progression about a month ago that my trainer made for me and am up to 60 ft at about 50-60%.
I came across your article or video about the new arm action you are recommending and I have always thrown with the old conventional action. I’ve decided since I will be on a throwing program for the summer now would be the best time to rid of my old arm action in which I achieved 0~10 degrees of external rotation by literally throwing the ball instead of letting my arm fire through.
So I guess my questions would be, am I supposed to be firing my elbow through first? Sometimes my elbow begins to hurt after warming up, do you think this is because I haven’t thrown like this before? Should I be straightening my arm at all before releasing the ball? I will admit sometimes I can feel the ball fly out of my hands without any effort. I also will try and post a short video soon.

This is the link to that article. This should answer a lot of the questions you are referring to.
