Trevor Bauer’s average fastball velocity sits somewhere between 93 and 95 mph.
But if you only watched the Cleveland Indians pitcher’s offseason workouts, you’d think he was a right-handed Aroldis Chapman.

Now, this clip should be taken with a grain of salt. Not only does Bauer utilize a running start, but he also throws a three-ounce ball (regulation baseballs are five ounces).
Still, this is a pretty eye-opening display of arm strength from Bauer.
