I am a 6’ 2" left hander and only weigh around 150. Yea I know I should weigh more but I’m stuck with it. I don’t have a whole lot of time to work out or anything like that. I got cut last year because they wanted me to play first base or outfield along with being a pitcher, but I have some vision problems and can’t really handle doing anything but pitching, so I was cut three weeks into the year and lack experience at the varsity level.
I am able to consistenly throw about 78-80 with my sinker and around 82-84 with my 4SFB (I have hit as high as 86 a couple times). I have what I think is a pretty good changeup with a lot of movement, especially because I don’t tip it anymore.
However I haven’t got the hang of any other type of breaking pitch at all. I messed around with a splitter for a bit, but it seemed like every third one I would throw would just stay flat and act like a slow fastball. I can’t control a slider worth a damn and I just recently started trying the big 12-6 curveball, which I can make break considerably, but need more time to perfect.
I also have been working with the head coach at a nearby college to improve my mechanics and during pitching sessions of up to about 50 or 60 pitches have gotten to be able to throw overall 50 percent strikes when using my whole repertoire.
Am I at a decent enough level to pitch well enough not to get cut this year as a Senior? Because I really could use some scholarship money for college.
