I briefly touched upon Brandon Gomes’ arm action last night, here is what I was talking about:
In the top frame, you see Gomes in one of the middle stages of his delivery. The throwing arm is fully extended and his palm is too, meaning left-handed batters are going to get a good look at the ball. The bottom frame, on the other hand, shows why righties might have even more problems with Gomes. I’m not sure if I would call that sidearm, but Gomes definitely has a lower slot than most right-handed pitchers.
Gomes’ delivery reminds me of someone, but I haven’t placed my finger on who quite yet.
