Kimbrel's fastball rested between 93-95 mph during Saturday afternoon's game. In the 10th inning of Friday night's win over the Nationals, his fastball sat between 95-97 mph.
"I feel pretty good that I was able to go out there and throw 93 to 95," Kimbrel said. "I don't have to throw harder than that."
There certainly has not been any reason to be concerned about the results produced by Kimbrel, who has surrendered just one hit while not allowing a run in his first six appearances of the season.
According to brooksbaseball.net, the average velocity of Kimbrel's fastball in his first five appearances was 97 mph. His first dip in velocity came on Saturday as he made his fourth appearance in a span of six days.
