SEASON 2 EPISODE #1 of THE FIX

Angel Borrelli and Joe Janish start off season two of The Fix discussing pitching mechanics and injury prevention. The beginning of spring training / spring practice through the beginning of the season is the time when most pitching injuries occur — why? Here’s a hint: you can’t blame it directly on cold weather. Also, what is the single most important factor to consider in keeping pitchers healthy this year — for pitchers at all levels from little league through the big leagues? (Another hint: it has nothing to do with pitch counts nor innings limits.) What should you be looking for, and asking your pitchers, when spring practice begins. Finally, Angel provides a secret to pitching velocity that pitchers can begin working on today.

Joe Janish has been coaching baseball for 20+ years, and playing for 30+. He was a D-1 ABCA All-American catcher in 1992, when he finished in the top 15 in the nation in hitting. He also coached at the D-1 level, and currently provides private instruction to serious baseball players in the NY/NJ/PA area.
