Lucas Giolito says… “It happened naturally without me having to think about it.”
If you’ve ever tried to change your mechanics but had no luck and instead found yourself not only losing velocity and command, but also confidence… You probably need to read this post.
A couple of months ago I wrote an article about Lucas Giolito and how he naturally changed his mechanics without even thinking about it.
Now here we are in June and guess what?
That same guy, just received MLB’s Pitcher of the Month in the American League. Here’s the latest interview and let me go ahead and apologize in advance for the quality.
Here’s what Lucas Giolito had to say when asked about the changes he has made since last year and how he has become one of MLB’s most dominating pitchers in the game today.
“I was never actually trying to change my delivery. It was just all part of the process starting Day 1 of the off-season to get my legs right and my hips right… Using ply care balls and The Core Velocity Belt which I love to use and it all happened naturally, didn’t have to think about anything and yeah, the confidence just grew from there.”
In case you missed the previous article, you may want to read it here. (No worries, I’ll wait for you.)
Whenever you’re not having to Over-Think your delivery and can focus on just pitching, your confidence grows. It’s obvious with the changes he’s made that have allowed for his increased confidence. And we both know, whenever you’ve got confidence on the mound, it’s reflected in your numbers.
Take a look at the improvements he’s made this year compared to last year:
Obviously with stats like this, you don’t reach this point without actual “stuff”.
Take a look at the increase in velocity this year compared to years past…
What you have to understand is this… The mind and body are one.
Congrats to Lucas Giolito and the guys who trained him this off-season.
Job well done fellas!
