Article by Joe Trezza talking about his new found velocity. Exceeded his previous career high velocity 15 times yesterday.

I thought the stuff (even besides the velocity) looked pretty good. If that is his new norm velocity, then once he gets his command and feel back, he could be a real nice rotation piece on the next contending O's team.

Or at the very least he's a really intriguing add for a team looking for pitching (and willing to part with high-end prospects)

Not worried about Means at all. Rusty and amped up and has some new mechanics going on. If I have any concern it's just whether or not he will still have that magical changeup. I expect his next outing to be good.

With all the high tech equipment and expertise Elias brought into the organization Means finds 3+ MPH throwing into a mattress during quarantine?

He could have been practicing changes recommended by the staff based on the results from the high tech approach.

I would think he would have mentioned it but maybe not.

Just thinking that if he was practicing a change that he made to his delivery, the idea to make the change had to come from somewhere.  Did he come up with it himself or was it a coaching suggestion?  You're right in that he doesn't really say.

Are you implying he had help?

Nope.

I was implying that he didn't get help.

I don’t buy it. He’s juicing.
