You’ve all seen the fancy Yu Darvish gif by Blackbelt Gifologist Drew Shepherd, and a lot of you have probably seen other MLB players get the same treatment. My editing skills are not nearly that good, but I would like to provide you with a GIF to illustrated that Justin Verlander is back on track.
Below you can see his velocity and movement from the terrible start in Texas and also his velocity and movement from his very good start yesterday in KC. As you can seen, the separation between the pitches is much better, but so is the movement. He’s good.
