If anyone has ever witnessed Dave Bush of the Brewers or Keith Foulke formerly with the Red Sox pitch, they have this very awkward looking form that I refer to as drawing back a bow versus dropping the arm prior to delivery. As bad as their mechanics look, is there any risk to elbows, etc.? It just looks they put a lot of strain and excessive torque on their elbows as they pitch this way and not fluid at all. I’m assuming it’s not as bad as I think it is because they made it to the big leagues-but other than the posibble elbow injuries, etc. I would also think they have less velocity than could be from this form.
Any thoughts form anyone on this delivery style would be greatly appreciated.
