10 Degrees: Jered Weaver’s fastball can’t even break a Texas speed limit, and what it means for his future - Yahoo Sports

Only here we are, in May, four full weeks of the baseball season past, and Weaver – 20-game winner and Cy Young runner-up within the past half-decade – is averaging around 83 miles per hour with his fastball. Considering the biggest in-season leap from April to the end of the year last year was 1.2 mph, the prospect of the 32-year-old Weaver regaining his velocity grows unlikelier by the day.

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.”
