Yes, that Marlins reliever’s hop in his delivery is legal

For those wondering, yes, Capps’ unorthodox delivery is legal. The righthander hops toward the plate, and he was called for illegal pitches while he was in the minors. But MLB clarified things for him in April.

“They just said they wanted me to make sure I dragged my foot and not get too elevated in the air, and make sure it’s more on a lateral plane,” Capps told “As long as I do that, they have no problem with it.”
