“I’d slightly [answer] the query, ‘Is he throwing too laborious?’ than, ‘Is he throwing too gentle?’ The place does that finish? What’s the proper velocity? … So would it not be good this time for him to not throw as laborious? I don’t know. It’s all going to get answered if and when — not if, however when he will get right here.”
