ESPN Sweet Spot blogger Joe Janish and baseball pitching motion expert Angel Borrelli discuss MLB pitchers' injuries and provide injury prevention guidance and performance tips for baseball coaches, pitchers, and parents of all ages. In this episode, injuries suffered by Masahiro Tanaka, Doug Fister, Chase Whitley, Shane Greene, Jonathon Niese, and Stephen Strasburg.
Topics include: What is an elbow flexor strain, and what should a pitcher do if he is suffering from that injury, and what can pitchers do to prevent it? What should a pitcher do when experiencing soreness in the arm? What does it mean when a pitcher has "tingling" in his fingers? What is "ulnar neuritis" and how is that kind of injury treated? What is the importance of the front/landing foot in the pitching motion and what can happen if a pitcher -- like Strasburg -- has weakness in it?
Also, Angel tackles several myths about pitching, including: should pitchers run after pitching to reduce lactic acid? Can a pitcher safely pitch twice in one day? Can pitchers also be catchers? Should pitchers use a softball to practice the curveball? and other bad advice facing pitchers and coaches starting summer ball.
Finally, Angel provides a velocity tip that is easy to accomplish for every pitcher at every level.
On the show tonight will be former Dodger and Yankee Tommy John. Also Baseball Essential's Emily Shoffit and Rays pre and postgame analyst Neil Solandz.

Baseball pitching velocity tips, scientific analysis, and injury prevention podcast hosted by baseball coach and ESPN SweetSpot blogger Joe Janish and featuring pitching motion expert Angel Borrelli. In this episode, Joe and Angel interview Dr. Glenn Fleisig, Research Director for American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI). Among the topics covered include Major League Baseball's willingness to accept science in general and biomechanical analysis in particular; how quantitative and qualitative analysis work together to correct flaws in the pitching motion; and how science can prevent pitching injuries. Dr. Fleisig explains the process of evaluating and applying mechanical adjustments. Finally, Dr. Fleisig answers hot-button questions such as: 1) can mechanical adjustments enhance performance; 2) what is keeping pitchers from making necessary changes; 3) how can pitchers avoid second -- or third -- Tommy John surgeries; 4) are pitching injuries inevitable.
