Other Random Observations

  • Ben Joyce’s fastball has been excellent in a small sample size (surprise!)
  • Sam Bachman throws his slider a lot and gets great results
  • Detmers has a killer curveball that he throws 19% of the time
  • Shohei’s cutter has been pretty lackluster (i.e., a nice way of that it’s gotten bopped)
  • Silseth had 3 plus pitches: Sinker, Cutter, Slider

I’m not implying that any of those guys should cut out the 4-seam altogether or significantly reduce their usage of it, because they do use that threat to enable their off-speed stuff. But golly gee willikers, the contrast is stark between the haves and have-nots.
