Parnell breaks 100 MPH

I didn’t totally believe the radar gun readings I saw on TV last night at the time, but here is Bobby Parnell’s Pitch Speed chart for the 8th inning last night.

As you can see #4 did eclipse 100MPH according to Pitch F/X (via BrooksBaseball’s Pitch F/X tool.) Now if this kid could just learn to throw one other decent pitch other than his fastball (which he’s thrown 88% of the time this season), he might really be onto something.
