Tim Lincecum mechanics | Talk Pitching | TopVelocity Baseball Forum

Was wondering if Tim Lincecum is doing anything differently in his mechanics to make him throw harder. Above is a link of 5 pitches he threw in his last spring training game. Pitches 2-4 are fastballs at 94, 93, and 92 mph, with an average of 93. Last year, according to fangraphs, the hardest pitch he threw all year was 94 and he averaged 90. Also, the last time he averaged 93+ was his second year in the big leagues. Please tell me what you think this sudden jump in velocity is caused by.

He did explosive training over the offseason, which helped his mechanics.
