Jered Weaver’s velocity takes a dip in Angels’ 6-5 loss to Arizona - LA Times

Jered Weaver’s fastball averaged 86.8 mph last season, when he went 18-9 with a 3.28 earned-run average, but even by his standards, his velocity is down this spring. The right-hander ranged from 82-84 mph and hit 85 mph twice in a three-inning, two-run, five-hit effort. “How many velocity questions are we going to have?” Weaver said in response to his first velocity question of the spring. “I don’t pay attention to velocity. It’s more about getting location down and being able to get on pitches when you need to.” Manager Mike Scioscia said he thinks Weaver’s velocity will increase when he irons out his mechanics. “He has a lot of moving parts and was a little out of sync, really fighting himself,” Scioscia said. “We know Weav is gonna be there.”
