If the Boston Red Sox need an extra starting pitcher this year, they might want to think about converting Jackie Bradley Jr., because that guy can bring the heat.

Thanks to some new, cool statistical tools, the speed of a ball thrown by an outfielder can be tracked. During the first inning on Boston’s win over Toronto Friday, Bradley was clocked at 10.3 mph on a throw home from center field.

The throw was offline and missed the mark at home, but just the sheer speed is impressive.

Of course, from watching this previous video of him we posted, you already knew about his arm strength.
