Eno Sarris On Young Pitchers’ Declining Velocity

Here’s a nasty open secret about pitching: Young pitchers don’t get better as they age. There is no peak age. As soon as they start firing bullets they start running out of time. They’re born and then they start dying.

I enjoyed the piece. It reminded me of something MGL wrote a few years ago.

The Book Blog | MGL: No matter how I slice or dice it, pitchers get worse every year…

My issue with this is that it cites to those awful, error-ridden aging studies that got published on Fangraphs in 2012.

MGL aside, any study that looks at pitcher aging without considering injuries is going to end up as a study that shows nothing except the effects of injuries.
