Any way you want to slice it, Chris Sale has been one of the most dominant pitchers in college baseball this year.
Looking strictly at future potential, Sale could have a plus fastball, plus change up and average slider to go with well above-average command.
Follow Conor on Twitter conorglassey. Those who rank Sale lower, will do so predominately because of concerns about his throwing motion. Standing nearly 6-foot-6 and weighing 47 pounds approximateSale could be broken in half by a strong wind.
On the one hand, he has plenty of room to mature physically, adding functional muscle. On the other, if this is what he looks like after the freshman 15, his body just might not be made to handle a lot of weight.
On the positive side, Sale's mechanics are certainly deceptive. Even though they are unorthodox, he does seem to repeat his motion well. He begins his motion by flexing his torso and leaning his upper body towards first base. However it is also a needless expenditure of energy.
The only pitchers who successfully pull of a similar move are submariners who use that shoulder tilt to create their arm angles. Sale releases the ball in a normal, upright stance. While the ideal mechanics may vary from pitcher to pitcher, the idea behind the motion is that of an efficient kinetic chain.
Energy starts when a pitcher drives off the mound. It continues when he rotates his hips, then shoulders and at last that energy makes its way into the ball. He seems to throw mostly with his upper body. He flexes his torso out towards first base and reverse rotates his shoulders.
However I believe that is not as severe as it looks, since Sale lowers his front shoulder, the elbows and shoulders are actually much closer to staying in their acromial lines, the line is just angled upwards. Whenever his shoulders start to rotate — which is earlier in his delivery than most — the ball is not in a position to be accelerated towards home plate.
Instead of being up, with his forearm vertical, the ball is still at, or slightly below, shoulder height.
Late forearm turnover appears to be a significant predictor of future injury. There are many factors that go into an injury. Rest and recovery time, genetic factors, diet, pitch counts, workload and dozens more.
The average pitcher is likely to get hurt sometime in his career.
Nothing certain, just elevated risk level. That level of risk can never reach zero, but if I were a scouting director or general manager and about to invest several million dollars in a prospect, I would want the level of risk to be as low as possible.
I do not know of another pitcher who has been a durable starter with a motion similar to Sale. The closest comparable I can think of, in terms of having similar mechanics, is Anthony Reyes hat tip to Pat Hick ey who first brough up this comparison in the Project Prospect forums Conclusion Chris Sale is an extremely productive left-handed pitcher with advanced control and good stuff.
He has a chance to rack up high strikeout totals, low walk rates and good ground ball rates. His long-term home appears to be in the bullpen.
