MLB Daily Heat Check Thursday, August 20

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 Two-seam 99.40 1
Nathan Eovaldi Fourseam 98.92 59
