Weaver will be fine

Recommended Posts

He had a great Spring. It's not like he's falling apart all of a sudden.


Just a bad day and also going against Felix. The fastball velocity is concerning, though.


It isn't sudden.  It has been a gradual decline.  I'm hopeful he can fight through it and be an average pitcher the next two years, but it definitely looks like he's gone after this contract is up.

Not many pitchers with high maintenance deliveries last well into their 30s and maintain even decent/solid numbers.

The competitive nature can mask it for only so long. He will have solid outings like in the past.

But will they continue to decrease in each of these next 2 seasons?

I am usually not a Chicken Little fan, but I am concerned about Weave's velocity. 85-88, I think with his location and usual command, he'll be able to get by.


When he's topping out at 83, consistently at 81...then I am concerned. That is not going to cut it here. 


Weaver's FB picks up velocity after OD. Relax.

An 81-83 MPH "fastball" is going to get crushed by Major League hitters unless it is perfectly located. Color me concerned.

Exactly. Everyone is so concerned about his velocity that they're missing the main issue. Weaver needs to learn to locate his FB better as his off speed stuff is still really good.
