Still, I recall a Patrick Corbin spring game where his velocity plummeted after an unusually high first frame... so not getting ahead of myself (yet). But Harvey could sure use a regular return to 96+ mph.

In case you were wondering what velocity "snapping back" looks like, as described on today's podcast, Matt Harvey's first inning is a solid example. Eight fastballs 96-plus mph.

Strikeout leaders still well behind Ryan

The Yankees' CC Sabathia tops the active career strikeout leaders with 2,584. The Mets' Bartolo Colon, the Mariners' Felix Hernandez and the Giants' Jake Peavy follow, but Nolan Ryan's 5,714 all-time record looks untouchable from here.
