MLB Daily Heat Check, Saturday August 8

heatIndexHere you’ll find information regarding the pitchers that light up the radar gun each and every night. I’ve listed for both starters and relievers the top average pitch velocity with a heading for type. It doesn’t equate to quality of an outing or take into consideration the end result of the pitch (sometimes really, really good fastballs go a long way), but it’s fun.

Nathan Eovaldi 96.78 Fourseam
Kevin Gausman 96.60 Fourseam
