Alex Bregman – Changeup
Alex Bregman had a xwOBA of .499 on splitters in 2021, but he only saw 14 of them, so it’s difficult to nominate that as his pitch. The other pitch Bregman hit well this past year was the changeup, on which he accumulated a xwOBA of .381, xSLG of .486 and an xBA of .290.
Fun fact: Bregman saw 14 splitters and 187 changeups and ended the season with a Run Value of 4 on each pitch. He crushed the few splitters he saw, perhaps something to remember for a healthy Bregman in 2022.
