Im guessing David Bromberg is still the hardest throwing minor league starter but he is still in AA after having success in AAA TWO years ago. Believe (Seth knows for sure) he hits 92/93 regularly, which makes him about as good as we got. He has been sharp his last 3 starts.
How sharp? Bromberg's AA stats don't look great -- his WHIP is 1.35 and his era is 5.29 with only 17 innings pitched, per MLB website for New Britain.

gotta look farther into Bromberg's numbers. He started in pen, & was rocked given up 10hits & 9ER in his first 3 appearances....2IP w/2bb oK.
Since, 5gms 3 starts 15IP 7h 1er 15k 4bb....pretty sharp to me. 3rd season in AA after having AAA success in 2010, hopefully can move up soon.
3 years, and yet he missed about 4 months of last season with the broken forearm. Glad he's tarting again!

It has always been my contention that we baby these pitchers way too much in the twins system. They get to 100 pitches and they are shut down. That doesn't build arm strength!! Look at what Nolan Ryan has done at Texas, these guys go 130-140 pitches regularly and aren't breaking down at the rate the twins pitchers are. Take off the diaper and let guys build the arm strength and you will see guys improve or at least maintain velocity.
No pitcher for Texas is averaging over 110 pitches per outing and none have gone past 121. For the most part, Washington takes the starters out between 100 and 110 pitches.
