The Fix Season 2 Episode 9

In this episode, Joe Janish and Angel Borrelli discuss updates of 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. Finally, Angel provides a velocity tip by illustrating — with photos referenced below — how pitchers need to, and fail to, “get over the front leg.”
