PHOENIX -- What stood out to scouts watching Sunday's All-Star Futures Game?

The heat.

Not the triple-digit temperatures outside Chase Field but the near-triple-digit radar-gun readings on display inside. More and more, baseball is becoming a game of power pitching, and Sunday offered proof that more hard throwers are on the way.

Pitcher after pitcher lit up the gun at 95 mph-plus.

Scouts said that Phillies prospect Jarred Cosart and Rays prospect Matt Moore, who both topped out at 98 mph, clocked in with the fastest fastballs Sunday.

No one is really sure why there are more hard throwers in baseball now, but everyone seems convinced that there are. One theory: kids work with private pitching coaches at younger and younger ages, developing stronger arms and possibly better mechanics.

But all the velocity doesn't necessarily mean pitching is getting better.

"They throw hard, but they don't pitch," one scout complained. "We're developing all closers and set-up guys."
