Pitcher's lose between 3-4% rotator cuff strength during a season


This isn’t new, but it’s still interesting to think about now that the 2015 MLB season is back underway…

According to research, Major League Baseball pitchers lose between 3-4% of rotator cuff strength over the course of a season.

It has also been shown that pitchers lose between 11-18% of arm strength from fatigue over the course of a game.


Folks like Dr. Andrews have claimed for awhile now that pitching while fatigued is a potential source of injury. Now it seem folks are starting to quantify things. Sounds like progress to me.
