He didn't seem to throw much more than 91-92 fastball, though I thought I heard his last start he had more velocity. And 10 Ks. Worth keeping a close eye on for sure, and maybe taknig a flyer on in bigger leagues.
I don't know about the rumor of increased pitch velocity (I missed that game), he's been hovering around 91-92mph on his fastball all season. I've watched a few of his games and he looks like he isn't trying to throw the cover off the ball and isn't overdoing it. I'm pretty sure he is just taking it easy on his arm and the rest of his body after all his past injuries, I'd be willing to bet he can still hit 95 if he wanted to though.
