Relief Pitcher, Juan Rincon has been training with Five Tool Baseball for the past 2 years.
After being released by the Dodgers at the end of spring training 2011, Juan continued his strength training, conditioning and throwing programs with FTB preparing for the 2011 season with the Bridgeport Bluefish of Atlantic League and winter ball in Venezuela.
After a private and encouraging bullpen session for members of the Angels Front Office, Juan signed a minor league deal with the Los Angeles Angels on Friday February 24, 2012.
His foot is in the door. Now it's time to get to work and show why he belongs on the hill.

- Five Tool Baseball Performance Training (FTBPT) is dedicated to sharing its knowledge, ideas and opinions on baseball performance training based upon field tested experiences as player, coach and baseball strength & conditioning coach. Proper exercise technique ( to ensure effective & efficient training programs) and baseball related movement patterns are implemented to maximize on-field performance. Emphasis is placed on movement based training which integrates multiple muscle groups. This approach has a greater transfer to on-field performance and can minimize the incidence and risk of injury. If a game is being played you can be sure Im watching it from home or from the stands. Many of my own workouts involve designing/creating out-of-the-box exercises & programs to enhance performance and movement unique to baseball
