Minor League’s Hardest ThrowersBy
It’s fitting that we follow a post about Phil Hughes’ much discussed velocity with one about the hardest throwers in the minors. I didn’t do the legwork, BA did. We’ve heard alot about the high success rate of Tommy John surgery, but the #4 pitcher on the 2002 list is a prime example of a guy who’s stuff never returned to pre-TJ levels. Having two of the three hardest throwers in the minors is pretty badass.
