First off I have to say AWESOME site!!! I love it!!! Well I guess I should start by telling you guys a bit about myself. I have been playing baseball since I was 3 and I’m not 24. I have been a pitcher for the whole time, but I recently hit some bad luck. 2 years ago I shattered my leg and I just recently got full motion of it back a few months ago, so I didnt throw at all for 2 years.
Well In April I started throwing again, I started by close light toss and progressivly moved to long toss (100ft) and throwing about 80 throws then I would stretch and throw a few more. After about a month of that I started to throw off of a mound again, I threw very lightly and progessivly threw a bit harder each time.
Here comes the issue, once I started throwing about 2/3 power I felt a small pop on the outside of my arm and a slight burn, so I threw a more and it started to stiffen up until it became semi weak. I stopped for a few days and iced it figuring maybe it was weak.
A week later I went out and did the samething, but this time I was being clocked, after an hour of stretching and medium toss I took the mound and my first 3 pitchers were only clocked at 84MPH which is normal for me when I throw medium…well when I let it rip I only reached 89 which is TERRIBLE I normally throw 93-95 at full power and I can do that for most of the game. After only 3 good pitches I felt that pop again and back came the buring and the weak arm.
I have no clue what it could be, I stretch before and after pitching and I warm up for 30-60 minutes. I have NEVER had this before, but it botheres me because I cant throw like I used to and this nagging pain is getting to me. the pain is on the outside of my upper arm on the deltoid, so does anyone have a clue what this is and any idea how to help it?
Oh and I throw over arm and some quarter side arm
