Felix’s Fastball On Adrenaline
You’ve seen Felix pitch this year at 89-92 with his fastball, and his average fastball velocity has been down compared to past seasons. Lately, though, it has started to come back. Today, once Felix decided to go for the perfect game, it came roaring back. Here is the velocity trend of his fastballs — all pitches labeled as either a four-seam, two-seam, cutter, or sinker by PITCHF/x — in today’s game as the game progressed.
Felix + Adrenaline = Welcome Back, Fastball.
