Yimi Garcia, Up the Ladder

When Yimi Garcia was a prospect, his standout pitch was a “high spin” fastball. In December of 2013, Chad noted a public Trackman report on the pitch. Trackman is a radar-based system used to measure pitch spins more accurately than Pitch FX can, but it is generally unavailable to the public.
