HOUSTON–I’ve charted pitches during Texas A&M sophomore righthander Barret Loux’s first two innings (though I’m not sure I’ll be able to do the whole game, as I’m already behind schedule on Top 25 Tracker). He’s been outstanding through two hitless, scoreless innings, racking up four strikeouts (including striking out the side in the second). Loux is just attacking Houston hitters with his fastball–32 of his first 34 pitches have been heaters. He’s sat at 91-93 and touched 94 five times on my Stalker Pro II radar gun. Loux has conserved his strength early in at-bats, getting ahead with 90-91 mph heaters and then reaching back for 93-94 to put hitters away with two strikes. His two offspeed pitches: a 75 mph curveball for a soft line out in the first, and an 83 mph changeup that dove into the dirt in the second.
