Is it a loss in velocity or an increase in the necessary force for the ball to break orbit and head towards the plate?
When the surgery is to remove a bone spur that was causing pain? Quite possibly, yes.
Tommy John surgery also improves velocity (not just from the injured state) but sometimes from the pre-injury norm.
If a guy has an elbow problem, and they fix it, why shouldn't velocity go up?
CC's averaged less than 92 mph(rounded) twice with his fastball as a Yankee. Opening Day last year (around 91) and yesterday (around 90).
CC's actually bordering on slender these days.
Maybe not, but he's lost about 30 lbs.
They can't sell out opening day?
