With just 20 uses in 2019 and exclusively against LHB, the changeup was not a significant part of Adams’s repertoire in 2019. It was, however effective when it did come out, holding opposing hitters to a .175 wOBA and getting 5 swings and misses with its average drop and fade.

The slider in Adams’s repertoire was used about 37.6% of the time in 2019 and showed above average depth and gloveside sweep. At 86.8 mph, it proved an effective pitch for Adams, generating chases (40.4%) but also able to work in the zone (51.3%), generating 14.5% SwStr overall. With only 2 hits allowed (1 HR), it ended up holding opposing hitters to a .483 OPS and a .192 wOBA.

Austin Adams threw his four-seamer 37% of the time in 2019 with an average velocity of 95.1 mph and netted subpar results, allowing hitters a .503 wOBA against it. His low arm angle leads to a heavy sinking action with less tail than the average fastball, but it was still in the zone on 60% of its uses. It did prove a decent swing and miss pitch with a 66.7% contact rate and 10% SwStr and the wOBA may be skewed by allowing 3 XBH on the 15 balls put in play.

Adams’s primary pitch in 2019 (63%), the slider shows the exceptional drop and sweep typical of low arm angles and comes in pretty firm at 89.4 mph. While not consistently in the zone (37.1%), it tends to be difficult to hit when it is (63.6% Z-Contact). Hitters were largely unable to barrel it up in 2019, finishing with a .229 SLG and .213 xSLG.
