Hey guys im new to this forum but was wondering if i could get your guys’ help in trying to get drafted this next year. Im a senior in college at a div. 2 and it’s my last year trying to get picked up (in college). Im a 21 yr old 6’2 185-190 lbs. right handed pitcher. I got a fastball (4 seam and 2 seam), changeup, and slider. i throw above average velocity. fastball right now (im in fall ball right now) is around 87-89 and ive gotten it up to 90, changeup is the pitch im still working on. it hovers around 82-83 with some good break but im working on gettting it more consistent.
Now that i got my bio out of the way, i was wondering if you guys could give me some advice. I’ve talked to some scouts and they like my stuff but they would like me to gain a little more velocity on my fastball and theyd like to see me last a little longer in games with my stuff. I was thinkning about implementing a 6oz. weighted ball into my throwing program about 2-3 times a week (not too much, just about 10-15 throws after im done with my throwing program). I am also going to try to start throwing a football to get that wrist pronation to get my changeup a little bit more consistent.
Do you guys think this would be a good way to gain some velocity and work on my changeup? or should i focus more on my workouts to get the extra 2-3 mph?
Im also wondering how i should go about trying to get more movement on my pitches? i have a natural cut to my balls so i get some cutting action to my four seam fastball, but as you may notice, it affects my consistency with my 2 seam fastball and changeup because those pitches require some tail to them (ideally). also with the changeup, pronating is kind of tough to get consistent because my arm action is natural cut.
any suggestions to try to correct this?
