MLB Prospects: Trevor Bauer's Profound Late-Night Twitter Feed
Trevor Bauer is all baseball, all the time.

Everything about Trevor Bauer is unique.

From his delivery to his long toss routine to his bio-mechanical approach to pitching, it’s clear that baseball’s No. 9 prospect enjoys being eccentric—almost downright nerdy to an extent.

Packing thought-provoking quirkiness into everything he does, Bauer is nothing short of insightful and entertaining.

As I perused my Twitter feed late last night, I came upon a series of tweets from the man himself.  Naturally, Bauer’s tweets are far removed from the grammatically flawed boasts of the typical minor leaguer ballplayer.

Rather, Bauer took a few moments to share a stream of thought on the human body, pitching, and what it feels like to be in synch with your mechanics. Not what you were expecting, right?

I think that’s one of the things I admire most about Bauer: He’s always thinking baseball and seems to be on a perpetual quest to learn more.  Not a bad quality for a 22-year-old big-league hopeful.

Here is exactly what the hard-throwing right-hander had to say:


@BauerOutage: welcome to another edition of the late night musings of the mind of…well…me. 1) the more I think about it… p r c really controls all (cont.)

@BauerOutage: considering a consistent posture and connection, all the body has to do is be explosive in rotation to create velocity. How simple!

@BauerOutage: velocity creation…with enhanced health benefits! Been playing around this season and every time I play catch. Feeling is A+

@BauerOutage: keys: 1) pre set as much as you possibly can in the delivery. This simplifies everything down the road.

@BauerOutage: 2) make sure the glute, hammy, and quad are all turned on. Send them a polite reminder that ummm hello guys, we are supposed to do work now

@BauerOutage: 3) lift my leg and move towards home plate…act like I’m sitting in a chair…then rotate as explosively as possible!

@BauerOutage: 95+ has never felt so good and healthy coming out of my hand. Its like, the more connected I am…the harder I throw with less pain.

@BauerOutage: hard to describe the sensation. But all I ever feel when I’m connected is a warm feeling in my arm. No strain no stress. Like a massage!

@BauerOutage: combine this with shoulder recovery from @DST_Lee…my arm’s left feeling brand new the day after I start. THIS is how it should feel peeps.



That’s some profound thinking from one of baseball’s finest prospects.
