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.
