Analysis: Strasburg came up with the idea after watching Texas' Yu Darvish and Cleveland's Carlos Carrasco. He approached pitching coach Mike Maddux with the idea at the start of spring training. "If you can keep and repeat your arm slot, theoretically it's supposed to put less stress on your arm,'' Strasburg said.
