DevX DIAGNOSTICS: PITCHING EVALUATION

FULL MECHANICAL & PITCH DESIGN ANALYSIS

Nic Billings

I wasn't sure what to expect at first, but I was amazed at the level of detail they went through. I found out exactly what I needed to work on.

Comprehensive Pitching Evaluation

Before beginning any training program, it is crucial to have yourself evaluated. This allows both you and your coach to identify weaknesses and formulate a training strategy to attack them. Our Comprehensive Pitching Analysis is a two part evaluation examining every relevant detail about your throwing mechanics and pitch arsenal.

Step 1: Capture

After gathering some information from you, the first step is to warm up how you would normally warm up for a game or bullpen. We have plyo balls, J-Bands, Foam-Rollers, outdoor turf to play catch, and anything else you might need to get loose. When you’re ready to go you will throw a 25-30 pitch bullpen using our Trackman. You will throw at least 5 of each of your pitch types, and will be recorded from various angles with high-speed video.

Step 2: Analysis

Mechanical Analysis

After gathering some information from you, the first step is to warm up how you would normally warm up for a game or bullpen. We have plyo balls, J-Bands, Targets, Foamrollers, outdoor turf to play catch, and anything else you might need to get loose. When you’re ready to go you will throw a 25-30 pitch bullpen using our Trackman. You will throw at least 5 of each of your pitch types, and will be recorded from various angles with high-speed video.

Pitch Design Analysis

With the help of our Trackman, we are able to capture every relevant metric to better understand what each of your pitches are doing down to the smallest detail. These metrics include: velocity, spin rate, spin efficiency, vertical break, horizontal break, spin direction, location, release point, and vertical approach angle. With a sample size of each of your pitches, we are able to compare you against your peers for each metric, to identify any weaknesses or missing pitches you might have in your arsenal.

Step 3: Breakdown

After we collect and analyze your video and pitch data, we build out a complete report for both your Mechanical Analysis and Pitch Design Analysis. After giving us at least 48 hours, we meet again to go over the Evaluation. 

 

Using the Video we captured, we will take you step by step through the entire throwing delivery and highlight each of your strengths and weaknesses throughout the pitch. As we go, we answer any questions you might have and suggest certain ways you can go about improving those areas. 

 

Using the Trackman report and graphics from your bullpen session, we break down each one of your pitches for you, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses. We will also make recommendations and offer certain advice on how to go about making the proper adjustments to your pitch arsenal. Whether that be adding a pitch, taking a pitch away, or manipulating the spin, velocity, or shape of the pitch; we will give you our expert opinion and offer solutions. 

 

After answering any more questions you might have, you get to go home with your report that you can reference when training. Even better, you can continue to work with us so we can help you develop your weaknesses and leverage your strengths. 

FAQ's

We recommend that you be at least 13 years old or pitching at 60ft 6 inches before doing the DevX Diagnostics: Pitching Evaluation.
