Yu Darvish’s Latest Shutout

» 23 May 2009 » In npb »

Yu Darvish threw another shutout today, devouring the Yakult Swallows 3-0, striking out nine, but also allowing eight hits.

I’ve put together a velocity chart for this game, but if you’re on the homepage you’ll have to click the “continue reading” link to check it out.

Note that Darvish’s fastball, forkball, cutter and shuuto (which is really a two-seam fastball) all sat around 88-94 mph, while his slider and curve were around 70-80.

Roll over each element of the chart to get metadata on the pitch. And let me know if you see any problems.
