Curt Schilling (RHP, BOS)

Schilling and the Red Sox made a big deal about the fact that he altered his between-starts workouts to build up the muscle strength in his entire torso, not just his pitching shoulder.

Previously, Schilling told the Boston Herald, his focus was on the rotator cuff muscles and not much else. Because of his age and the need to have the supporting muscles of the pitching shoulder as strong as the rotator cuff muscles, he made a huge adjustment in his workout routine while out on rehab. Supposedly, this new regimen added strength to his shoulder and improved the velocity on his pitches.
