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.

He features a slider that generates above-average velocity on average, which is 91.1 miles per hour.

Blake Parker

“I think that our bullpen is top five, if not the best bullpen in baseball. The Indians have had to turn to their bullpen more this season than in recent years. From the start of the season until Civale was placed on the injured list on June 24, the Indians’ bullpen owned the highest strikeouts-per-nine-innings ratio in the Majors at 11.24. But the club knows it wouldn’t still have a winning record without its bullpen.”

But Francona said he has nothing up his sleeve this time around. “I’m sick of him,” Francona said. The Indians sent starter Eli Morgan down to Triple-A Columbus prior to Thursday’s series opener against the Rays in order to clear space for Sam Hentges to join the bullpen.”
