King Felix Mechanical Analysis

I always hate spamming, but I figured this might be a pretty captive audience, so...

The short of it is that Felix generates most of his power from his upper body, getting very little from his legs - this adds pressure to his elbow and shoulder, although I think his delivery is smooth enough to avoid a serious injury.

The thing that needs to be fixed before anything else is his little mid-delivery head-jerk; it's a recurring problem that's hurting his command, which is pretty much the only thing keeping Felix from being a great pitcher * right now *.
