Luis Cessa
New York Yankees


50.2% Thrown  94.5 MPH

Cessa pounds the zone often with his Four-Seamer, though he'll have to manage his command inside the zone a little better as batters teed off for 12 longballs off the heat last season.


11.7% Thrown  80.4 MPH

Cessa' deuce is safe to be labeled as a "Get-Me-Over" Curveball, though it can be used in strikeout situations to catch batters sleeping at the wheel.


27.6% Thrown  84.5 MPH

Far and away the best pitch inside of Cessa's repertoire is this Slider that earned whiffs at a stellar 19.0% mark. Its heavy groundball rate of 64.0% and strikeout production helped induce a .227 BAA and just a .053 ISO allowed. Look for Cessa to trust his slide piece whenever he needs a big pitch.


10.4% Thrown  84.8 MPH

Every Four-Seam pitcher benefits mightily from a solid Changeup and Cessa is no different. His slow ball earned a respectable 38.7% chase-rate with a 4+ inch separation from his Four-Seamer. However, he needs to work on spotting the pitch low in the zone as batters laced liners at a 34.4% rate while making contact in the zone at a whopping 96.7% mark.
