DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Aside from a short stint from Byung-Hyun Kim, has there been a submariner who has had any success as a starting pitcher? Is there health benefit to a submarine motion?
(doog7642 from Blaine, MN)
The low-abduction of the shoulder (under 90 degrees) is a much more natural motion, so sidewinders do have a functional advantage. That said, true submariners tend to endure a section of very poor balance during the stride phase, and the ever-changing center-of-gravity creates other potential implications of the motion. I think that the main reason we don't see starters is that submariners tend to have extreme platoon splits, making them vulnerable to lineups that are stacked with opposite-handed bats. (Doug Thorburn)
