Matt Andriese
Tampa Bay Rays

Fastball

45.9% Thrown  91.8 MPH

Andriese throws Four-Seamers taking advantage of his decent "rise" on the pitch, earning a whopping 52.0% flyball rate in 2016. The plan hinges on keeping a low HR/FB rate on the heater, but a 13.0% mark needs to drop moving forward.

Curveball

11.0% Thrown  80.0 MPH

Andriese's Slider is the primary breaker, making this Curveball more of a rare offering that can be featured early to get strike one or the ocassional surprise strikeout option.

Slider

17.8% Thrown  84.7 MPH

The best pitch in Andreise's arsenal is this Slider, which he can comfortably throw for strikes at a moment's notice, both trough pumping the zone and earning chases off the plate near a 40% rate. During any tough situation, expect Andriese to turn to the slide piece.

Changeup

16.6% Thrown  86.0 MPH

There is a boatload of upside with Andriese's Changeup considering a near 10 inch difference separating his Four-Seamer and Changeup. That absurdly high change of eye level induced whiffs at a stellar 17.6% and crazy good 53.7% O-Swing. Look for his usage of the pitch to rise in 2017 and could be a path to major success for Andriese.
