A Look at Indians Pitchers’ Velocity Metrics


Emmanuel Clase

He throws a HARD Fastball and on average it was 100.1 miles per hour. We are not able to compare his Four Seam Fastball to his Changeup because he does not feature both pitches in his repertoire. We are not able to compare his Four Seam Fastball to his Curveball because he does not feature both pitches in his repertoire. He features a slider that generates above-average velocity on average, which is 91.2 miles per hour.

Nick Sandlin

He throws an above-average Fastball in velocity and he throws it on average 94.3 miles per hour.

James Karinchak

He throws an above-average Fastball in velocity and he throws it on average 96.1 miles per hour. We are not able to compare his Four Seam Fastball to his Changeup because he does not feature both pitches in his repertoire. His Four Seam Fastball has a below average velocity difference from his Curveball, which is not very good as hitters looking for a Fastball could find a way to still make good timed contact with his Curveball given the lack of velocity difference. It is only a 12.4 MPH difference. He does not feature a slider or he does not throw it enough to qualify.

Blake Parker

“After an unprecedented year in 2020, having just five rounds in the MLB Draft due to the COVID-19 pandemic and limited resources to scout players because of the circumstances, the Indians are expecting a deep Draft class this time around. “Your standard reasoning is this will be a deeper Draft class this year than in previous years,” Indians director of amateur scouting Scott Barnsby said. And after five rounds in 2020, Major League Baseball determined that this year’s Draft will extend out to 20 rounds, beginning on Sunday.
