Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says (via Twitter) Sergio Romo is throwing sliders 61% of the time and fastballs 31%. Last year Romo threw 54% sliders and 44% fastballs.
The slider is a very hard pitch on the elbow. Romo could be setting himself up for some arm trouble in the future. That’s a lot of stress on the elbow. I’m know Dave Righetti, but I do know all these sliders can’t be good for Romo long-term.
