BASEBALL AMERICA: TRUST IN PROCESS HAS WORKED FOR MICHAEL MERCADO

June 1, 2017

 

Mercado started working in Edwards’ program, which uses a lot of weighted ball training and focuses more on development... That specialized pitching program has led to one of the more unique pregame routines you’ll see. If he’s starting at 3:30 p.m., Mercado will start jogging around 2:30. After that he’ll stretch, do plyometrics and then work with a shoulder tube to activate his shoulder capsule. Next are drops with a 32-ounce ball, reverse throws and overhead work with a medicine ball.
