He was experiencing decreased velocity in Oakland before the trade - he was checked out throughly upon being traded - probably nothing. Boy did I freak when I read the thread title. But he hasn't allowed a runner yet and has 5 Ks - so I'm not too concerned about pitch speed.
Hmm.. upon further thought, might better belong there. My apologies if it's the wrong forum.
As a huge Harden fan, I can't believe he's going to have success long-term cruising at 89mph. Two years ago he had more 100+ mph pitches than any other pitcher in the AL. I know his speed was down in oakland, but "down" was still mid-90s.
