Video: Luis Severino pitching in 2014 Futures Game 9


For all of those following the minor leagues closely, yesterday was a huge treat: the 2014 Future’s All-Star Game was at Target Field. The stars of tomorrow shined and they took the field, representing their organizations.¬†Yesterday, the Yankee had two players represent them: Pete O’Brien and Luis Severino.

Above is video of Severino pitching in the All-Star game and he is the prospect to watch. Between Charleston and Tampa, he’s 4-3 with a 2.41 ERA in 18 games. It was an impressive inning for him, but I don’t believe the video above has sound–it didn’t have sound when I was trying to watch it. Anyway, watch and enjoy and don’t forget: at 8 p.m. it’s the Home Run Derby!

        Breaking balls with "side-to-side action" thrown by a right handed pitcher, are either two seamers, or cut fastballs.

        A slider thrown by a right hander, breaks down and away from a right-handed batter, and down and in to a lefty. A curveball breaks straight down, with no tilt.

          A 12-to-6 curveball tends to drop straight down, but even that has some right-to-left movement when a righty throws it and some left-to-right movement when a lefty throws it. Then there is an 11-to-6 curve also known as a sweeping curve that breaks across the plate. There are other kinds of curveballs that are less common, most of which have at least some horizontal movement.

            Mr. A,

            I think our understandings of breaking ball movement differs, thus I think we should agree to disagree. I did, however, enjoy exchanging ideas with you.

            Good luck to you, and I hope you have a great week.

            Our understandings of a breaking ball differ? Are you denying that an 11-to-6 curveball really exists or are you just saying that it has no horizontal movement?

    Thanks for sharing this video. I was watching the game live, but my internet connection died after the Peterson double and did not come back until Severino was done. Nice to see the rest.

    Thanks for the video…Severino has some really good upside…he threw some hangers in the video but hopefully that improves…
