Angel Borrelli and Joe Janish talk baseball pitching mechanics and injury prevention. In this episode, they discuss updates with pitchers from previous episodes, such as Homer Bailey, Jonathon Niese, Justin Verlander, Vic Black, and Masahiro Tanaka. In particular, Angel explains the connection between Vic Black's herniated disc and his shoulder weakness, and she goes into detail about Tanaka's reduced velocity.

In doing so, Angel explains the scientific process of diagnosing and fixing pitching mechanics. Also, Angel uses Masahiro Tanaka's minor UCL tear as an example of what can happen when pitchers pitch through major injuries.

Finally, listeners are treated to a free tip to increase a baseball pitcher's velocity, which will be more easily understood when you see the photo displayed here.
