(And, to be clear, the answer is YES in both cases).

I'm not sure what you are trying to convey by lifts his leg as if he is going to deliver a pitch" -- how that is separated from "lifts his leg as if he is going to throw to second",

And, I am not sure what you are trying to convey by "essentially stops his motion" -- any reversal or stop would be a balk, but I don't think that's what you really mean.
