The Pittsburgh Pirates selected Jameson Taillon with their first selection in the 2010 draft. He’s big. He throws with great velocity. You will like this link that does an excellent job at looking at his mechanics.
Any unnecessary pause in one’s arm action or delivery can cause a pitcher to bleed energy, which costs him velocity. Taillon also loads his shoulder extremely well, which is surely a factor in his tremendous velocity.
