Quantrill’s Changeup had the unfortunate combo of both walking too many batters (8.2 BB%) with giving up too many HRs (20.0 HR/FB%). All hope is not lose though as it still boast a solid SwStr% of 13.6% and a decent O-Swing% of 34.8%. If he can work to keep it in the yard in 2020, this pitch could see a bit better fortune.
While possesing good vertical movement, Quantrill’s curveball did not fair well in 2019. Hitters crushed it for a .375 AVG with a 206 wRC+. While it didn’t walk anyone, the pitch didn’t draw nearly enough chases (15.9 O-Swing%) for how often he threw it out of the zone (37.1 Zone%)
Quantrill’s fastball has some good horizontal movement on the pitch but was lucky in 2019. He used it mostly up and in vs. lefties and down vs. the righties.
Quantrill didn’t see great results in 2019 with his Slider as it registered a -1.3 pVAL overall. There are some signs for hope though as it did have a 33.0 K% and a 15.7 SwStr% so we’ll have to keep an eye on this pitch in 2020.
