MLB Daily Heat Check, Tuesday August 11

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 Sale Two-seam 95.37 53
Jon Gray Fourseam 94.37 59
Rubby De La Rosa Two-seam 94.16 18
