Circle change movement

how do i get more movement on my circle change
i want it to go in more like edinson volquez’s or pedro martinez’s

2 rules of thumb, if you want it slower, choke it further back towards the palm, sinking movement, pronate. If you want drop…choke it or throw a splitter.

Drop your arm slot. Get on the inner half of the ball and “roll over” the ball just like a sinker. Sidearmers generally get great downward movement on their changeups because of their arm slot.

Here is a picture of Volquez near release:

volquez gets nasty screwball movement
his breaks about 8 inches in to a righty

the old pedro’s was like that too

his arm slot would give him natural screwball movement

can you get this move ment with a regular changeup grip
if you pronate
