Checking out the pitchers who gained and lost velocity in 2015.

Welcome to our fourth annual look at pitcher velocity, starring data from Brooks Baseball and continuing the trend of past seasons by looking at pitchers who lost velo as well as those gained it. This will be a two-part series, starting with the losers, after which we'll reconsider the role of spine-tilt in maintaining velocity.

Raising Aces: Debut Ante: Jon Gray

His prospect stock has seemingly plummeted, but is Gray really worse off now than he was four months ago?

I have been gushing about Gray since he was drafted, and perhaps more impressive than his track record on draft day was the level of improvement within months of the selection. Gray relied mostly on his high-90's fastball and exploding slider while in college, but the Rockies made the refinement of his changeup a focal point in his development. Mandating that he use the pitch in games, the cambio quickly evolved from a theoretically mid-range grade into a pitch that misses bats and fools hitters with deceptive arm speed. Gray was ranked as the 13th overall prospect by the BP crew prior to the season, but his ranking has plummeted since and the right-hander fell off the Mid-season list of Top 50 prospects.

The lesser-known Angels starters have kept the rotation above water.

A close look at the mechanics of two starters who've taken steps forward in 2014.

Pitcher breakouts are one of the most exciting aspects of each baseball season, but it’s hard to get riled up about them until we have a healthy chunk of the season in the rearview mirror. The halfway mark of the 2014 campaign has revealed a handful of players who have made great leaps in terms of value, both to their teams and on the stat sheet. Two of those pitchers are particularly intriguing. The Indians’ Corey Kluber and the Angels’ Garrett Richards have ascended to a higher plane of pitching performance this season, so let's dig into the components of each player's improvement.

Raising Aces: Houston, We Have Lift-Off

Doug Thorburn

Looks at the mechanics of two of the Astros' surprise successes, Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh.

The Astros have unearthed a couple of legitimate All-Star candidates in their rotation this season, and though neither pitcher fits the “high-ceiling prospect mold” that has become characteristic of the franchise, Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh have quickly ascended from afterthoughts to valuable assets for the organization. Is their performance merely a blip on the radar, with regression looming to take each of them down a peg, or are there legitimate reasons to get excited about either of these two pitchers? Let's dig in.

Raising Aces: A Tale of Two Aces

Doug Thorburn

The best of times for Clayton Kershaw coincide with the worst of times for Justin Verlander.

Just 15 months ago, Clayton Kershaw and Justin Verlander were neck-and-neck in any discussion of the top pitchers in the game. The Motor City right-hander owned the American League, and the west coast southpaw ruled over the senior circuit, with each having finished first and second in their respective Cy Young races from 2011–12. They entered the 2013 campaign as the unquestioned aces of competitive clubs, poised to stage another season as kings of the mound, but their careers have taken dramatically different trajectories since then.
