OC Register: Angels monitoring Cam Bedrosian’s drop in velocity


Recommended Posts

ARLINGTON, Texas — Cam Bedrosian knows something is wrong.

A day after Bedrosian gave up a homer in a mop-up inning, he conceded that his decreased velocity has been an issue, although he doesn’t believe he’s hurt.

“I feel fine physically,” Bedrosian said Tuesday. “My velocity is still not exactly where I want it to be. I think it may be mechanical. We’re working on a couple things right now.”

Bedrosian has averaged 93 mph with his fastball so far this year. In 2016, before a series of injuries, he averaged 96 mph. Last April, he still averaged 96 mph. He went on the disabled list with a groin injury, and when he came back he was throwing 93-94 the rest of the season. That drop, Bedrosian said, was related to a lack of lower body strength from the groin injury.

“I think over the past year I may have gotten into some bad habits, with the strain and everything,” he said. “It takes a while to get out of them, unfortunately. I’m out there every day working on stuff.”

Bedrosian has allowed four runs on eight hits in 4-2/3 innings through his first six games of the season.

“Everything is a concern,” pitching coach Charlie Nagy said of the drop in velocity. “It’s something we’re keeping an eye on and talking to him about some things.”

Bedrosian also said that the velocity drop is not solely the reason he’s struggling.

“I have to make better pitches, whether I have the velocity or not,” he said. “The last couple outings there have been a couple pitches that I left up and they hurt me. I have to make better pitches.”
