I have a kid coming off Tommy John. By the way, I wasn’t coaching him when he was 13 and throwing 3 games a week. Don’t get me started.
Regardless, he has dropped his arm angle down a little bit and it’s doing amazing things to his ball. He was a low 80’s guy before and he’s sitting on that right now. He’s struggling with location though because the ball is running so much. He is getting the same run on 4 seamers and 2 seamers.
Is he pronating every pitch or turning it out?
Also he is struggling with his curveball. I don’t think he is getting on top but he tells me that he feels like he is. He used to have a nasty hammer and now he is getting frustrated because he knows it’s not as good.
I don’t feel comfortable having him throwing a slider or cutter because of the stress. I’m overly protective of him right now.
I guess I’m not really asking a question here, but does anyone have some good advice for me? Thanks ahead of time.
