NEWS & UPDATES
In July of 2015, a study was released in the American Journal of Sports Medicine that revealed that nearly 60% of Tommy John surgeries in occur in teenage males between the ages of 15 and 19. Now, four years later, have the statistics surrounding throwing injuries from youth pitchers to the Major League pitchers improved? From our statistics and observations, the answer is NO.
In today’s baseball culture, an increasingly larger number of pitchers spend a majority of their development TIME with a “throw harder” mentality. Throwing harder may be achieved, but the skill set to be successful may go untrained or undeveloped. As you prepare to spend TIME in your training program, is the time spent matching up with what it takes to be successful as a pitcher in a game?
As one of the first and most successful pitchers to train under the DVS System, Josh Mason has now been hired to implement and manage the DVS System in Metro Detroit. Josh will oversee and manage the DVS Development Center within 2SP Sports in Madison Heights, MI.
During the 2018 MLB regular season, 75 pitchers combined to earn $203,818,000 million dollars in salary. $139,415,000 million dollars of the salary was never truly earned by the 75 pitchers because they were unable to pitch due to a throwing related injury. A similar scenario happens each year, and when it comes to running a business, MLB Organizations continue to pay for MLB pitchers who are unable to fulfill 100% of their contract demands.. Can any of the unfulfilled contracts be avoided or managed differently?
Delivery Value System (DVS) completed a major data re-collection and database expansion in the Fall of 2018. This expansion increased the number of professional and college pitchers in our database to over 1200, including every MLB pitcher on an opening day 2018 roster. With the recent database expansion, the DVS Model continues to prove a pitcher’s mechanics significantly influence their time to a major injury.
The probability of injury occurring to a MLB Pitcher in future inning totals is now available to MLB Organizations looking to make short and long-term decisions regarding the value of their MLB pitcher. As part of Delivery Value System’s ongoing research to combat the rising injury trends among MLB pitchers within baseball, DVS created the DVS Forecaster, which encapsulates the power of the DVS Model into web-based software. The DVS Forecaster can be accessed on-demand by any MLB organization, and will be made available to MLB Organizations through an annual licensed subscription.
Later this summer, DVS will release an injury prediction tool to help Major League Baseball determine the current and long term risk associated with signing a baseball pitcher. The tool, labeled as the DVS Forecaster, is a web-based software application that will allow MLB Teams to choose a pitcher or groups of pitchers and see the corresponding statistical predictions.
In the Fox Sports Detroit segment Away From the Spotlight, DVS Founder Justin Orenduff and the DVS System were highlighted as a way to provide “pitching relief” to the next generation of healthy pitchers.
With six of the top pitchers taken in the first round of the 2016 MLB draft already making injury headlines, we wanted to take a look back at our analysis from that year's draft. In total, nine of the top 50 pitchers according to MLB.com’s top 100 Draft Prospects for the 2016 Draft have either undergone, or are scheduled to undergo surgery caused by a throwing-related injury. As much of our research has continued to revolve around finding answers and solutions to baseball's current injury epidemic, it's important to continue to shed light on these alarming trends that have seemingly become accepted as normal.
In a partnership with 2SP Sports Performance, DVS is excited to offer in-person training to baseball players in Metro Detroit. The two training facilities will be located within 2SP's Shelby Township and Madison Heights Locations.
Baseball pitching imposes significant stress on the upper extremity and can lead to injury. Many studies have attempted to predict injury through pitching mechanics, most of which have used laboratory setups that are often not practical for population-based analysis. Read about how our initial study sought to predict injury risk in professional baseball pitchers using a statistical model based on video analysis evaluating delivery mechanics in a large population.

The results of the 2016 Fall DVS Awareness Days are in, and we have seen a slight upward trend in the average DVS Score among youth pitchers. Also, we provide further insight for youth pitchers and coaches on the value of a DVS Score.
In an effort to create more awareness about youth pitching injuries, DVS travels to Delaware and Missouri to promote "DVS Awareness Day" where youth pitchers ages 10-18 have the opportunity to get a DVS Score and learn more about staying healthy in the current throwing culture.

DVS arrives in Utica, a city north of Detroit Michigan, to begin a season-long study of the United Shore Professional Baseball League.
The Delivery Value System is excited to announce the release of the DVS Arm Care System! After years of study and research, we have created a process in which a thrower can perform the daily maintenance required to sustain a healthy and functional throwing arm.
