Javier Vazquez’s Fastball Velocity
As requested by Mike K.
# is the number of pitches classified as fastballs in that specific game, game_velocity is the average velocity for the specific game, and rolling average is the cumulative average fastball velocity.
If he’s having “dead arm”, it’s not really reflected in his average velocity, although the dip after the All Star Break is curious. I suppose dead arm can also mean command issues, but I’m not buying that he’s fine and just needs to get over a dead arm. He’s either hurt, or he’s no longer got it.
