Toronto Blue Jays RP Brett Cecil is throwing his fastball at 93 mph compared to 89 mph last season. One of the reasons is Cecil's use of a weighted ball during a throwing program in the offseason. Manager John Gibbons also noticed that Cecil was using his offspeed pitches regularly, and it has led to better results. Cecil has given up only two earned runs in 11 1/3 innings this season.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brett Cecil saw a drop in velocity last season, and the problems continued in the spring. Cecil has reportedly added a few miles per hour to his fastball, but said that is something he is no longer concerned about. "The important thing is how to pitch," Cecil said. "I don't know what my velocity is going to be on Sunday, nor do I care. In 2011, it was a little bit different. I didn't know what it was going to be, but I cared what it was going to be. I wanted it to be back where it was, and now it's just been a season focusing on keeping the ball down and making my pitches move on both sides of the plate - and pitching on both sides of the plate."
