More Data on Frankie Francisco and his Velocity

New, comments

Looking at Fangraphs, Frank Francisco, in his first two games this season (which doesn't include today's game), averaged 91.3 mph on his fastball.

Over the course of his career, Frankie has averaged 94.2 mph on his fastball, and was at 93.5 mph last year.

Today, looking at Game Day, Frankie's velocity was generally 92 or 93 mph (with a low of 91 and a high of 94), and he apparently threw nothing but fastballs (although one pitch was not coded -- damn you, RangerFloppy!!!).

This probably is obviously, but is you throw nothing but 92 mph fastballs, and can't locate them all that well, you're going to get pounded.
