My 12u was throwing a winter bullpen the other day and felt some mild soreness that has lasted 2 weeks. We are going to see a doc this week but I have a few questions:
His team warms up by doing 20 or so towel throws then he threw 15 light throws before going into the bullpen. Is this really sufficient?
40 pitched in the bullpen and about 10 were curves (which I wasn’t aware of). I am not a fan of offspeed at that age but is this reasonable?
So here’s what I think is going on:. He is 5’4 100lbs and throws 68mph. I think this may be a decelerator issue as he gained 10mph over the winter.
Can Anyone suggest a regimine or mechanical adjustment to help ease the strain on deceleration?
