Who are the current MLB pitchers who can throw over 100 MPH? I know they recorded one of Verlanders pitches at 101 the other day. I am pretty sure D Cabrera also does. Who else?

A.J. Burnett could when his scar was once an elbow.
I believe Billy Wagner can, but I haven't seen a game recently.

yes, wagner can, but hasn't this year as far as i know. he's been working mostly in the low to mid-90s so far. though i did see him hit 99 once.

i think lidge might also be able to throw 100.
