I purchased Angel Borrelli’s warm up and recovery program earlier this year for my right-handed pitching 14 year old. Unfortunately, he didn’t follow your program the way he should have, and now his pitching shoulder is internally rotated. He doesn’t have shoulder pain at this point, so he’s been lucky, but I’m sure that if he doesn’t correct it he will. I’ve had the same issue from working on the computer all day at work, so I know a few exercises to help fix that, but I wish he had taken the program more seriously.
Also, at the same time as the shoulder diagnosis, he was also told that his left mid-lower back (I’m not sure what they meant – lats?) is “more developed” than his right. Does that also normally come from pitching right handed? (Or batting left handed?) What would be some good ways to even that out?
Hitting and pitching are asymmetrical activities (unless you switch hit). The player will naturally develop according to the one-way movement which is why conditioning both ways is important. I’m not a doctor or trainer so seek advice from the professionals on how to correct.
As an aside, I took my son to the podiatrist this spring to get warts removed from his feet. The doc took 15 seconds examining my son’s feet and said, “you’re a right handed baseball player, right?”. He could tell by the callous development.
