Yuli Gurriel – Cutter

We’re starting to sense a theme here through the middle of the Astros order: Cutter pitchers beware. We all know the 2021 American League batting champ hit several pitches well last season, but I chose the cutter and the .415 xwOBA Gurriel posted on the pitch.

There are other pitches with greater Run Values for Gurriel, but none with greater than the RV/100 (4.7) Gurriel registered on cutters. The actuals for the pitch are .429 batting average, .571 SLG and .476 wOBA.
