The Pitch that Each Houston Astros Hitter Crushes
3 of 10
Michael Brantley – Sinker
This was a lot closer than I expected as the sinker nudged out the four seam fastball for Brantley. While the xwOBAs were close (.419 to .406) some of the other metrics favored the sinker – xBA (.360), Wiff% (6.9) and HardHit% (52.1), to name a few.
There are multiple other pitches where Brantley did well and you would expect nothing else from the “professional hitter”.
