Sport kinesiologist and baseball pitching mechanics expert Angel Borrelli discuss Chad Billingsley's setback, including a description of the flexor tendon, its role in the pitching motion, and how it relates to the UCL and Tommy John surgery. Further, Angel explains the importance of recognizing warning signs / precursors to UCL injury, as well as finding the root cause of injuries -- which are often traced back to a flaw or flaws in the pitching motion. Also, Angel defines the olecranon, how Gavin Floyd may have fractured it, and how Floyd's fracture of it may be related to his UCL injury. Finally, Angel addresses the myth that velocity increases with longer stride / stride length should be a specific percentage of body height.
