Parker Hageman of Twins Daily put together a list of how many pitches each team threw this season that clocked in at 97 miles per hour or faster.

He probably did so mostly to depress Twins fans, but it also works as a way to highlight the Royals’ pitching staff:

Kansas City threw 2,287 pitches at least 97 mph. Minnesota threw one pitch at least 97 mph.

(Lester Oliveros threw the Twins’ lone 97+ mph pitch, in September.)
