Ollie Balanced?

March 3, 2010

Matt Cerrone of Metsblog watched Oliver Perez throw a bullpen session today and said:

I’d say I watched him throw a good 30 pitches, maybe more, he had essentially the same delivery on each pitch, and not once did he spin around, he finished each throw square to the batter, both feet on the ground.

In addition, his arm slot was the repeatedly the same, and he seems more explosive with his whole body as he releases the ball, he’s not slinging it like I remember.

I think that this is the year for Perez. If he does well the team will do pretty well. I can see him going 15-8 which would be very good. The key with him is to have confidence and not alter his motion every pitch. Stay consistent.
