Of interest in the first video, around the 2:20 mark he mentions that he worked with longtime pitching instructor, Tom House.  Having personally worked with Tom House in 1993, I know how quickly he can improve someone’s velocity if they are willing to listen.  While House tends to speak in terms of physics and bio-mechanics, if a pitcher can upgrade his ability to think there is much to be learned by Tom’s mechanics.  Some of those topics are in his older books found here:
