Michael Kopech hit 110 mph during his first max-velocity workout of the year

When the White Sox acquired Michael Kopech as part of the package for Chris Sale, they knew they were getting a pitcher with a blazing fastball. According to MLB Pipeline, Kopech sits at 96-98 mph and can even hit triple digits. 

They probably weren't expecting 110 mph, though. 

Now, sure, he wasn't throwing off a mound, but a) it's Jan. 17, so still a month away from when pitchers and catchers report; b) it was still over 4 mph faster than any throw in the Majors this year; and c) it's still 110 mph! Plenty to dream on there, Sox fans.
