Background: Overuse injuries of the shoulder and elbow continue to be prevalent in elite baseball pitchers. Pitch velocity has been shown to impact medial elbow torque in adolescent baseball pitchers. However, the determinants of medial elbow torque in professional baseball pitchers are not known.

The aim of this clinical laboratory study was to compare scapular and rotator cuff muscle activation between standard and modified exercises.
