Baseball is often credited with being the first major sport in the US to fully embrace advanced data and metrics. The “Moneyball” revolution was carried out in the pursuit of winning more games. The next breakthrough on the diamond may be leaning on advanced data and outsiders once again, but this time it will be carried out in the hopes of protecting players’ health.
In this episode of Sideline Data, we’ll examine how arm sleeves like the motusTHROW have the potential to shape the future of pitching. To understand the performance and medical benefits of this MLB-approved device we sat down with Dr. Joshua Dines. Dr. Dines is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and shoulder surgery for the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Additionally, Dr. Dines is a team physician with the New York Mets and New York Rangers and is one of 200 active members, worldwide, of the American Shoulder and Elbow Society.
