MLB Daily Heat Check Saturday, September 12

Here 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.

Starters Pitches by Average MPH:

Chris Archer Fourseam 96.12 51
Chris Archer Two-seam 95.63 3
Andrew Cashner Fourseam 95.33 37
