This episode of the Replacement Level podcast features David Aardsma. David talked about developing pitches, the pitcher catcher relationship, and the value of set bullpen roles.
He also discussed his Tommy John surgery, how his arm felt beforehand, and the rehab process to get back. He gave his thoughts on why more and more pitchers are requiring the surgery, how best to prevent it, pitch counts, innings limits, and the perceived danger of throwing the slider.
I hope you listen to and enjoy the interview. It can also be downloaded for free on iTunes.
