    pitcher will likely begin the season on the 15-day disabled list as he is not expected to be able to pitch in a game for another six weeks due to elbow inflammation, the Newark Star-Ledger reports Tuesday.

  • Just because: Lefty Grove’s throwing motion

    content_img

    The superlative Lefty Grove stands as one of the most underrated pitchers of all-time. Sure, he'ley beyond January.The 29-year-old has only featured once for the Clarets since signing on a short-term loan from Chelsea this past summer."We haven't really seen him," said the Burnley boss. "Of course we know him, we know what he does in training ws a Hall of Famer (class of '47), but you don't often hear his name mentioned as being on the short-short-short list of best pitchers in history. In part, that's because the bulk of his career fell during one of the most hitter-friendly eras ever (the 1930s).

    Still, Grove won an astounding nine ERA titles during his career, and his lifetime ERA+ of 148 ranks fourth on the all-time list. When you think of the best of the best, Grove should come to mind.

    Competitive? That was Grove. Ted Williams once called him a "careful tantrum thrower" because Grove made a point of punching lockers with his demonstrably less valuable right hand.

    Grove made hay with a terrific fastball -- "the fastest ball in existence," according to former major-league catcher Cy Perkins, and an offering that helped him once strike out Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Tony Lazzerri on a total of 10 pitches. After an arm injury in 1934, however, Grove relied more on his curveball, which caused him less pain. Because of his ability to evolve, Grove pitched in the majors until age 41. Of that evolution, Grove once said (source: ):

    "I actually was too fast to curve the ball while with Baltimore and Philadelphia. The ball didn’t have enough time to break because I threw what passed tus.The former Ajax captain turned down Barcelona and PSG to sign for Juve. However, the defender has struggled for minutes so far this season.But De Ligt says: "I'm really happy with the choice made this summer to sign for Juventus. "Many changes hafor a curve as fast as I threw my fastball. I couldn’t get enough twist on it. … Now that I’m not so fast I can really break one off and my fastball looks faster than it is because it’s faster than the other stuff I throw. A pitcher has time enough to get smarter after he loses his speed."

    "Too fast to curve the ball"!

    Anyhow, this up-close footage of Grove's delivery reveals part of what made him so special -- that zipper-quick arm action. Dig it:

    It's impressive how quickly Grove's left elbow gets out in front of his ball hand as he strides toward the plate. That's a good start toward throwing "the fastest ball in existence."

    And here's a GIF ad rotation.Sarri admits he needs to juggle his players for today's game with Roma.He said, “It depends on the characteristics of the players. Paulo Dybala starts his runs a little deeper and Cristiano Ronaldo off centre. Higuain therefore resolvesthat takes another angle and shows Grove in understated warm-up mode ...

    I'm no scout, but you see a couple of things here. First, notice how close and tight to the body Grove keeps his glove hand after separation. And note that he's got a pretty long stride toward the plate and good "spine tilt" (i.e., posture). Overall, his mechanics seem like a middle ground between the "drop and drive" delivery (Tom Seaver, for instance, would often hit the mound with his drive knee) and the "tall and fall" approach favored by, say, Nolan Ryan in his day. Grove didn't get as low as Seaver, but he's a bit more horizontal on the "backswing" than Ryan was.

    The lesson? The art of pitching has always been an art, as demonstrated by the great Lefty Grove.

    The and are in negotiations on a long-term deal, but assuming no multi-year deal can be completed by Wednesday, the Mets will pick up his $16 million option.

    Both sides have expressed hope a deal can be wd return for the first time in two months against Watford at Old Trafford on son Molumby says he's proud of coming back from a 15-month absence due to a knee injury.The 20-year-old, who is on loan at Millwall, was best on ground in the Republic of Ireland U21s win over Armenia on Friday.Molumby told The Argus: "It was tough cSunday.The Scotland midfielder has been out of action since suffering a knee injury against Newcastle on Boxing Day.

However, they see cross-town third baseman as well as others as cautionary tales about contracts taking players into their late 30s and even 40s.

    The Mets originally had hopes to make Wright's option date as a soft deadline of sorts for a multiyear deal, but it is believed the sides will keep talking after the option is exercised. The deadline to pick up Wright's $16 million option was for three days after the World Series, which is Wednesday.

The Mets' other option would be to buy Wright out for $1 million, but that was never a consideration. Wright hit .306 with 21 home runs and 93 RBI this year.
