[quote=“Nikae09”]I recorded a game Florida-Chicago where Zambrano was pitching. I find his mechanics very werid, his arm action to be more precise.
He rotates his hips, then shoulders, then his arm just fallows, his lower arm (from elbow to fist) looks like its “dead”, it just lags behind. It looks like he is not pitching downhill, so his pitches are flat. I think Kerry Wood arm action is very similar.
Do you guys think that kind of arm action could lead to some kind of problems?[/quote]
Based on the clips here…
…it’s hard to say for sure since I can’t go through them frame by frame. He does look a little arm-y. However, I generally like his mechanics. His PAS elbow never gets too high. His lower body action is also good.
What his arm does is normal. However, it’s kind of strange the first time you really look at it.
I also like how he doesn’t reverse-rotate his shoulders and points the glove at the target (at least for a second).
That last one was for you DM59.
