BASEBALL – Senior Advisor Of Pitching
Former Major League Pitcher Josh Zeid comes to Area Scouts with more than 12 years of experience both playing and working in professional baseball. Josh played in the Major Leagues with the Houston Astros in 2013 and 2014 and was also a pivotal member of the Team Israel World Baseball Classic team that went 4-2 in the 2017 WBC. Josh was named to the All-World Baseball Classic Team in that tournament alongside Marcus Stroman, Yadier Molina, and Javier Baez after throwing 10 scoreless innings and striking out 10 as well.
Josh is the perfect fit for our National Director of Pitching position as he pitched 347 career games professionally, 70 of those as a starter, and 277 as a middle reliever, set-up man, and closer. He has also worked in professional baseball the last two years as a rehab pitching coordinator and has focused his attention and studies on return to play protocols, return to play throwing programming, and the biomechanics of the pitching delivery.
Josh played collegiately at both Vanderbilt University and Tulane University and graduated with his degree in English and Political Science. He was selected in the 10th round by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2009 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft after going 6-0 as a senior as a Green Wave.
Josh is also the Regional Evaluator for the State of Arizona.
