Feldman's velocity is dropping, ain't worried

Scott Feldman isn't worried at all that his fastball velocity has dropped off by about 2.5mph:

It's not something to get too worried about. It's probably just something where I was doing something mechanically a little bit different; I got into a bad habit. 

That said, he's looked at video, and nothing has jumped out at him about a possible mechanical flaw. So that's encouraging.

Luhnow isn't worried, either:
He's not a power pitcher. He's got a full arsenal and he uses it effectively, and, really, that's what we signed and that's what we've gotten so far. So we're very pleased.

Collin McHugh will start in Feldman's spot on Sunday.
