Are you trying to be obtuse?
C'mon, man. He has the velocity in his hip pocket-- he's just chosen not to use it in past years in order to give more movement to his pitches. (There are reports of this pretty much wherever you want to look in the net.) It's more than possible that, as he ages, he will learn how to throw with more movement AND more velocity.
