The slider was exceptional for Wood in terms of drawing chases (43.9% rate) and whiffs (19.8%), but it also surrendered a .588 slugging percentage. It has been his best offering throughout his career.
Wood allowed just a .077 batting average on his fastball this past season. However, the pitch has not been strong in previous years.
Wood’s sinker did not do much to set itself apart, but the pitch avoided any significant damage.
Wood ony showcased 10 splitters in 2018, but he managed to force two whiffs in that tiny sample.
