MLB Daily Heat Check Wednesday, August 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:

Yordano Ventura Two-seam 96.32 24
Yordano Ventura Fourseam 96.17 30
Carlos Martinez Fourseam 96.08 29
