My post on Ubaldo Jimenez’s lost 96 MPH fastball went up today over at The Hardball Times. In it, I talked about the need for dedicated video review by an analyst in the Player Development department of every MLB club. I strongly believe MLB teams should set up two high-speed video cameras that take film from behind home plate and from the side of the pitchers mound; if they did this, they could capture a significant amount of kinematic data that would be useful for pitching mechanics analysis, injury review, and player development.
It really shocks me that this hasn’t happened yet.
