[Bearbeiten] Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen shut down for 10 da

Mariners Class AAA pitching prospect Danny Hultzen has been shut down for 10 more days and the team will look to rework his throwing regimen and mechanics in order to get to bottom of what s caused his shoulder woes this season. Photo Credit: AP Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik said moments ago that a decision was made yesterday to shut down Mariners pitching prospect Danny Hultzen for 10 days and then take a serious look at his throwing regimen and whether it may be causing his shoulder woes. Hultzen hasn t pitched since June 27 when he took the mound for the Class AAA Tacoma Rainiers.

We re going to do some adjustments to his routines, Zduriencik said. We re going to look at a little bit of his mechanics. You never want to overhaul anybody. I think that s dangerous with pitchers. But I do think you might look at some of the programs he s doing and try to do some alterations with it. We re prepared to do whatever it takes and I think some of this is a process where, you do one thing and see where it leads you. And then it takes you to Step 2 and Step 3.
Hopefully,Indianapolis Colts Jerseys China, when he starts throwing, we re going to see positive results. 

The team will also look at strengthening the muscles around Hultzen s shoulder.

We re trying to figure out exactly what causes this issue that he has, Zdurienicik said.? It s the funny thing about pitching. Pitchers have the tendancy to get hurt at times. Hopefully,Mariners score seven, still lose, from what we ve been told,nike nfl jerseys from China, this isn t something to be overly alarmed about but it s something that we have to address. And we re looking at a lot of different issues with him. 

As far as the team s other top pitching prospect, Taijuan Walker, Zduriencik confirmed that he will be on an innings-limit this season and will be shut down once he reaches that target number.
