Paulino among baseball's hardest throwing starters

The Washington Post ranked starters who can throw the ball really, really hard. Where did Paulino land?

3. Felipe Paulino, Astros. 95.3 mph. This flamethrowing rookie has bounced between the Astros' rotation and bullpen, and is 1-4 with a 6.18 ERA this season. Maybe he needs to throw more fastballs -- he only throws it 60.9 percent of the time, compared with 70.3 percent for Johnson.
