Didn't feel like reading through the 5 page thread Mad posted, so this may have already been mentioned. The few innings I caught of the game he looked really good at times, then at others (when he walked two, loaded the bases, and balked in a run
) he was needless to say a little off. I assume a lot of it was probably (hopefully?) just rust from being off a couple weeks, but his velocity seemed to be fine from what I saw. He was consistently hitting 94-95 in the fourth and fifth (that's when I quit watching) and his breaking ball pitches seemed to be fooling some hitters rather well. Other than the rough patch (in the 4th I believe it was where he loaded the bases) where everything seemed to be low (could have been trying to get a DP ball maybe) his control semmed to be pretty good.
