How much does Rothschild think Sabathia’s velocity is impacting his performance?
“It's hard to say because in this league if you have velocity and not location you're going to get hit. You get away with more pitches at higher velocities but I think the thing that I focus on is we have to execute those pitches consistently.
“The only way the velocity is if it's changing his arm angle because he's trying to muster or anything else. I don't really see that. I think he's trying to make pitches with what he's got on a given day and staying within deliveries and trying to execute pitches. Early in the season he had the same velocity and pitched really well. I think it's just executing pitches a little bit better.”
