It's Four-Seamers galore with Jenkins, though it doesn't come paired with a high flyball rate but rather the opposite - a low 18.6% mark as he cruised to a 54.2% groundball mark in 2016. Consistently locations down in the zone will do that. Bad news here is how hittable the pitch is when Jenkins doesn't hit his spot as batters earned a whopping .256 ISO against the straight heater last season.

Jenkins turns to his Slider most of his secondary pitches, but it did him little help in 2016 as it allowed 35.7% line drives and held just a 9.1% whiff rate. He couldn't locate it in the zone often either, holding a questionable 35.4% zone rate.
15.9% Thrown 82.1 MPH
Jenkins' most effective pitch was a Changeup that held batters to a low .167 BAA across its small sample of 142 pitches. Oddly enough, the slow ball had more "rise" than Jenkins' Four-Seamer.
