Jered Weaver vs. Aaron Harang

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Mariners attempt to salvage a win out of this series, with Aaron Harang taking the mound against Weaver. I pointed it out before, but Jeff Weaver's velocity is crazy, crazy low now. He never threw particularly hard, but his fastball velocity is now the slowest among all right-handers not named R.A. Dickey. It's all the way down to an average of 86.6mph, but it's still a plus pitch - and has been his best pitch for a number of years despite the decline.

I hope your Sunday is terrific.
