MLB Handicapping: Velocity down for some big-name starting pitchers

04.10.2012     01:04 PM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article from ESPN on some of the velocity issues with starting pitchers. It is not uncommon to see a few "dead arms" this early in the season with spring training not always allowing enough time to build strength and stamina. And fastball velocity league wide tends to pick up as the season progresses. Still, dips in velocity need to be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Felix Hernandez's lack of fastball is perhaps a concern though he did shed some weight during the offseason. Clayton Kershaw was sick in his first start so he gets a pass. Rumors are circulating that Tim Lincecum's lack of gas is a sign that something may not be right. Josh Beckett also makes the list after a disastrous fastball-less first outing.
