I haven't gone back to look at pre-injury mechanics yet to refresh my memory, but he does seem to be short arming the ball a little bit more than I remember. I could just be remembering wrong though.
I remembered him as having a weird short arm delivery. I couldn't understand how he generated his velocity.Sorta looked like a girl throwing.
I also think this is more Baker doing a favor,than anything else,but I like it.
