More PITCHf/x goodies

Last fanpost in a while I promise.  Here is the info from Gagne's two innings yesterday.  He threw 26 fastballs, 4 change ups, and 0 curves according to MLBAM.  Here is the side view of the averaged pitches.



Now obviously the sample here is tiny but, if anything, his change appears worse than it did the rest of the season.  He might be better throwing a majority of fastballs but I wouldn't be too quick to give him his closers role back.  Bush too threw a ton of fastballs.  MLBAM says 60 fastballs 11 curves, 11 changes, and 10 sliders which I think pretty much everyone else calls a cutter.  Whatever, you get the idea.

Also, I generated a list of every brewer pitcher's pitches by their runs100 .  Now runs100 is based off linear weights for 100 pitches so a negative number is good.  It also is funny because 0 isn't league average.  I'll post the league averages first.  I have tweaked the horrible pitch identification for brewer pitchers but not yet for the league

Shouse is all screwed up with his side arm action totally messing up the identification.  I haven't been able to fix his yet.  If you take a peak at McClung it looks like his off speed pitches kind of suck.  This makes me think that he wouldn't make it as a starter.  Bush, Villy,, and Parra really have been having trouble with their fastballs.  Before last night Bush's fastball number was in Gagne territory.  Speaking of him, you can see that neither his fastball or change has been doing the job.  Stetter's fastball took a huge hit yesterday as he couldn't throw strikes he threw a ton of fastballs and still missed the zone.  Sheets change, though new, looks very effective.  Maybe that is a good sign for the rest of the year.  Though maybe the league will catch up to it.

Have fun.
