Tigers | Worried about Rick Porcello

Detroit Tigers skipper Jim Leyland is concerned about SP Rick Porcello's drop in fastball velocity. Porcello was throwing only 88-90 mph in his last start Wednesday, Sept. 26, and he allowed four runs and seven hits to the Kansas City Royals. Porcello started the night hitting 92-94 mph on the radar gun, but it dropped significantly after that. "I just didn't like the way it was coming out," Leyland said. "I was concerned about it. He said something in the third inning and I didn't know about it at the time, but he said he had really no feel for it." Leyland said Porcello checked out fine health-wise, though.
