Anthony Reyes' Velocity

Postby JTWood » Fri Jun 29, 2007 10:02 am

After holding the Mets to two hits Wednesday — one of which was the game's deciding home run — Reyes said he continues to be troubled by why he throws with better velocity in Class AAA than he does in the majors. The reports the Cardinals got from his three minor-league starts this season confirm that feeling. The radar gun there reads him at 93-94 mph consistently. He touched 93 mph several times Wednesday but has consistently thrown between 88-90 mph in the majors. Other pitchers have seen a similar dip in velocity from Triple-A Memphis to the Cardinals, leading the possibility it's the guns, not the arm. But Reyes feels like he's throwing with less sizzle. He agreed that he pitches with more authority at Class AAA. ... Reyes has received the lowest run support in the majors, the only starter to get less than two runs for every nine innings he has pitched. The Cardinals have not scored a run in his last 10 1/3 innings.

You have to think it's the gun, but it's still weird that he feels like he doesn't throw as hard in the Bigs.

They should just bring up one of their minor league guns for Reyes' next start. :-)
