Even if Louisville's radar gun is running a 2-3 mph hot, that is still more velocity than we have seen from him in the past. If his fastball really has jumped up a tick, that would definitely have an impact on scouts opinions about his future. His first two starts at AAA would also open some eyes.
That Louisville gun is 2-3 MPH hot, not really a question at this point. Several guys are throwing that much higher than they have in the past, so I don't think it is all of them just picking up extra velocity all at once.. So he is more likely touching 94/95. Still, certainly better than he was last year.
