Henry Pavlidis of the Hardball Times looked at the Pitch/FX data from the Futures Game.

Here's a link to Brad Pea****'s graph: http://www.hardballtimes.com/images/uploads/Pea****-Brad-502748-class.png

The Nationals sent Pea**** to Arizona last fall, so this was a quick check-up on the 41st rounder from the 2007 draft. He's been outstanding in Double-A this years, sporting a nifty 5.6 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Like Miller, he didn't crack 95 in this outing but has shown 95+ in his previous PITCHf/x games.


To my not-so-trained eye, it looks like he had good seperation in velocity between his fastball and change-up. The lack of movement on his fastball, however, is a bit striking.
