I am a 20 year old right handed pitcher 6'0" 172 lbs with a 4 seam, 2 seam, change up, curve. My fastball is 88-92 and so far topped out at 94mph.

2011 Vanderbilt Baseball: Fall Preview, Part 1

Also featuring a degree of polish and talent that should earn early innings is Half Hollow Hills West High graduate TJ Pecoraro out of Dix Hills, New York. Pecoraro is, on the optimistic projection, a Nick Christiani-like righty who can pitch right off the bat. At about the same stature (6’ 150 lb) as Christiani when he arrived in 2005 and with just about as much life on his heater (low 90s MPH), Pecoraro was deemed college rotation ready by scouts at the Area Code games where he dominated some of the best competition in the nation. He rounds out the fastball with a biting slider, an 11-to-5 curve and a changeup. Pecoraro will likely see time initially as a setup man, but Corbin did hand Christiani, with similar stuff, the closer role as a freshman. He eventually projects out to be a starter, but will likely start out in the pen for a very deeply staffed rotation like Vanderbilt’s.

 I work with Mike Camp of Bethpage Physical Therapy. Mike has developed an extensive workout program specifically designed to help keep my shoulder strong which will help protect my elbow, along with a workout for the rest of my body.
