My latest article for The Hardball Times has gone up – Brandon McCarthy: Mechanical changes for the better?
Here’s some of the high-speed video I shot of Brandon when he pitched against the Mariners last week:
An excerpt from the article about my thoughts on McCarthy’s mechanical changes:
In my opinion, McCarthy’s new delivery is a huge upgrade on many levels. He’s obviously getting much better results with it, but the new delivery promotes rotation significantly better by doing a superior job of finishing rotated to the target while his trunk is “stacked” more efficiently. He is “loading” his scapula in a better pattern, which may help to limit injury given his history of scapular stress fractures without any loss of velocity.
