Luis Severino, the New King of Velocity

After averaging 98.3 mph on his fastball in Sunday night’s marathon of a game, the same Luis Severino that went down with a tricep strain a year ago Friday, causing many of us without retrain to give up on a 22 year old arm, currently sits atop the velocity leaderboards on his fourseam fastball (starting pitchers, min.
