Why Tommy John Surgery is an Epidemic
Since last night’s Mets – Phillies game was washed out, perhaps you can get your baseball “fix” by listening to “The Fix” — a weekly podcast I do with sport kinesiologist Angel Borrelli.
In Episode 6, Angel and I discuss Matt Moore‘s elbow injury and whether it was due to throwing the change-up. Further, is the change-up a dangerous pitch? Also, Angel describes the secret to velocity. Listen below:
In Episode 7, we continue discussing the change-up and how different pitching grips can affect the forearm and elbow. Angel also goes into detail to explain the difference between a biomechanist and a kinesiologist, because it seems that most baseball journalists think of biomechanics and kinesiology as the same thing (they’re not). Finally, Angel offers her theory on why Tommy John Surgery has become an epidemic, and further, how it can be prevented. Listen below:
