Norris’ revamped cutter played a big role in his success coming out of the bullpen in 2017, and 2018 was a continuation of the trend. The pitch had a solid 5.0 pVal thanks in large part to an absurd 18.1% whiff rate, 58.2% ground-ball rate, and .195 average against.

The four-seamer had a 55.8% zone rate and was clearly the pitch he turned to when he needed a strike. It had a mediocre 9.1% whiff rate, and opponents slugged .478 against it, making it the worst pitch in his arsenal by pVal.

Norris’ two-seamer doesn’t have the drop that you customarily see with a sinker. It did have decent arm-side run, though, and generated grounders at a healthy 39.4% rate. Hitters mustered just a .209 average and .326 slugging percentage against the pitch in 2018.

Though Norris only threw it 73 times in 2018, his slider had all the makings of a Money Pitch: 48.8% chase rate, 42.7% zone rate, and a 20% whiff rate. It’s a great putaway offering that he busts out right when he needs it.
