|2014-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)||Press reports indicated that the Orioles spent one of the early days at spring training for a bio-mechanical analysis of their pitchers.
What is that?
Is it helpful/useful?
Are other clubs doing it?|
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
|Biomechanical analysis involves hi-speed capture of a pitcher's delivery, using a system of 8-12 cameras that capture up to 1000 frames per second. They can also make biomechanical measurements for all of the elements that are on the report cards (and many, many more). This is actually what I did at the National Pitching Association in San Diego, running the motion capture system for biomechanical assessment of our pitchers. The O's have Rick Peterson on staff, and he has been a proponent of motion analysis for a decade. Most clubs will send their pitchers to the Andrews Institute of ASMI for a motion analysis, but only a handful of teams have their own systems in-house. (Doug Thorburn)|
|2013-04-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)||You gave Yovani Gallardo an "F" in the Starting Pitchers Guide and had issues with the mechanics of a few different Brewers pitchers. Is it an organizational philosophy of high arm slots in an attempt to get downward plane on the ball?|
(Steve from Milwaukee)
|That certainly appears to be the case, as all of their top pitchers are over-the-top guys with poor posture and shallow release points, including Gallardo, Estrada, Fiers, and Peralta. The trend even applies to former Brewer stud Ben Sheets. I had hoped that story was over in Milwaukee after they hired Rick Peterson, but now Peterson is gone and the trend persists.
Great observation, Steve. I wrote about the details, contrasting it with the Rays organizational philosophy, in this article: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=19895 (Doug Thorburn)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
