Shohei Ohtani (29, LA Angels), a splitter who opened a new chapter in the dual career of pitching, was selected as the best pitch for each club. This is the part where the end of Ohtani is unknown.
On the 10th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, selected and announced one of the best pitches among the pitchers of each club.
Mostly breaking pitches were on this list. This is because it is difficult to overwhelm major league hitters with a four-seam fastball.
According to this announcement, Ohtani’s splitter has been selected as the LA Angels’ representative pitch. Ohtani’s splitter batting average is only 0.093.
However, Ohtani is not a pitcher who throws a lot of splitters. Among the changing balls, the percentage of sliders was the highest at 30.4%. The percentage of career splitters is only 15.8%.
In 2018, the first year of his major league debut, the splitter usage rate was 22.4%, but last year it fell to 11.9%. On the other hand, the slider rose from 24.6% to 39%.
Also on the list were Kevin Gaussman’s Splitter, Chris Sale’s Slider, Jacob deGrom’s Slider, and Clayton Kershaw’s Curve. 카지노
Following that, Carlos Rodon, Shintaro Fujinami, Spencer Strider, Ryan Helsley, and Hunter Green were selected as the best pitch for their four-seam fastball.
The most unusual pitch is the splinker thrown by Joan Duran (25, Minnesota Twins). This pitch has the characteristics of both a splitter and a sinker.
