Chris Young's fastball is rising to the occasion

Chris Young throws an 86-88 mph four-seam fastball. Yordano Ventura throws a 95-98 mph fastball. Chris Young's fastball was better this year. Here's why.

Chris Young was a revelation in 2014. After battling injuries in the past few years, the tall, soft-tossing veteran rebounded in Seattle to post a 3.65 ERA in 165 innings pitched. Despite this, few teams were interested in the 35-year-old during his free agency last offseason, so in spite of his successful 2014 campaign, Young signed a one-year deal with a base salary of just $675,000 to pitch out of Kansas City’s bullpen. MLB Trade Rumors, a calm voice of reason in the baseball journalism world of aggressive hot takes, wrote, "For Young to receive a big-league deal at this point in the offseason qualifies as a minor coup." His contract does include incentives that could push the deal to $6 million, but when a team gives a journeyman number five starter a base salary only a few thousand dollars above league minimum, they do so without the expectation that he will be starting Game Four of the World Series.

Posted 631 days ago. via MLBTradeRumors

Young, Perez the ideal combo to stifle Mets

Posted 632 days ago. via mlb.com

Chris Young and his 89-mph fastball wouldn't seem to be an imposing figure in a World Series of high-velocity flamethrowers. But he's making it work, in part because he throws high to hitters who aren't used to that, and in part because Salvador Perez is his perfect catcher.
