“Reading reports and watching highlight videos, Gambrell was supposed to be 91-95. In this game he ranged from 87-92 with the fastball with a lot of 88 and 89s. This is why I’m wondering if he is completely healthy because his diminished velocity, inconsistency with locations and control, and lack of life on some of his pitches gave me mixed reviews. “
“Dye’s delivery is a little herky jerky with a lower arm slot. Dye is not overpowering as his fastball only sits in the upper 80s, but he features a decent slider that he throws at 78-81 MPH and an above average change-up that also sits 78-81. “
