So basically prior to tonight, he was within .4, .2 and +.2 of his season average in the past three games.
I'd say that absolutely should be ignored.
He started off the season with lower velocity, which explains his season average. But from July 2 till Aug 22, he averaged 99-101 MPH in 2/3 of his appearances, and overall averaged 99.1 MPH over those 26 appearances. He also never averaged less than 97.4.
Probably nothing to worry about, but worthy of further examination at the very least.
