2012-08-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Doug, I've read from Dick Mills that long-toss ruins pitchers arms and causes injury. Do you buy into that? He states that is why the Rangers have so many injuries in their staff.
(Jacob from Illinois)
With all due respect to Dick Mills, I am wary of such claims in light of the variables involved in injury prediction. There are also a variety of long-toss programs, and any pitcher who fails to support such a program with proper mechanics and conditioning will be at an increased risk when throwing long-toss. A pitcher also needs to retain sound mechanics during the long-toss exercise, as some players will sell out to throw the ball a further distance, or raise the shoulder axis like a cannon shooting at a distant target.

Regarding the Rangers, they are way ahead of many other teams when it comes to the art and science of pitching despite the old-school perception of Nolan Ryan. He was one of the first to be involved with hi-speed motion analysis, and his coaching staff is on top of all the latest research.
