Cimber’s sinker is meant to neutralize righties, despite a modest 85mph average. It’s not a swing-and-miss pitch, but it’s a worm killer and effectively so for Cimber.

Deceptive arm action puts Cimber’s slow-action slider to work. If left on the plate, batters can tee off, but Cimber’s slider has largely been effective tailing away from righties.

Cimber’s sinker found the strike zone often in 2018, leading to a 63% zone rate and nearly three strikes for every ball. With a solid K rate of 20% and stellar 65% ground-ball rate, the pitch had a respectable pVal of 7.4.

As a strikeout pitch, Cimber’s slider was solid, sinking 15 batters against just one walk across 58 plate appearances. But when batters did connect, they connected hard. The pitch gave up just as many singles last season (7) as it did extra-base hits, leading to a .196 ISO.
