Wondered if anyone might have some advice/drills for trying to rebuild or recreate a pitcher’s delivery.
17 year old, threw very well last year for about 1/3 of a season, then was diagnosed with GIRD. Didn’t pitch again until the summer (I suggested he not throw as he wasn’t really needed to on the summer team), but he did.
What I have now seen is that a tall (6’2), big kid has dropped his arm slot down and is kind of pushing the ball. He had a great “down angle” throw before, and now he seems to have lost it, along with some velocity and accuracy. He seems very honest that his arm no longer hurts at all, so I just beleive he got in the habit of throwing from that lower position when his arm DID hurt, and now he’s relearned to throw from there.
Other than repeatedly working on his old arm slot, one-knee throwing, etc. Are there any other drills or rehab anyone knows of to get him back up to a good arm slot? Thanks in advance
