I used to pitch in college and was wild for a while until my pitching coach noticed I was falling off a lot to the first base side. His leg stride seems to stop short, not extending it to its fullest, short arming it somewhat of how a catcher would. he does not get on top of the ball, basically just whipping the ball as hard as he can. Now I'm sure we can all see this just from watching game footage, but am surprised going into his final year and possibly trying to get the most out of him at the trade deadline, they did not try re-adjusting his mechanics and risky to try and change them during the season. But the way he's throwing the ball, I don't think it could hurt that much.

(I took off the caps. this AM. I came to this thread hot from the game thread last night. Also want to add that I do appreciate Pat G.'s (et al's) efforts here. But I still don't want to watch a reclamation project during the season in the show.)

Last time I checked, he is still on the no shake diet.
Honestly part of the problem with his blown save attempt was Castillo calling too many fastballs (idk about right now but last season Marmol wasn't allowed to shake off pitches). He called ALL fastballs against BJ Upton in his AB, if you do that too many times in a row against a hitter with that sort of power you're gonna get burned.
