Edwards only threw his changeup six times, so I wouldn’t expect the pitch to be a big part of his repertoire moving forward.

Edwards curveball hit a four-year low in SwStr%, but more concerning was the 100% Z-Contact%.

Edwards struggled with injuries in 2019 and it showed in his fastball velocity which hit a career-low 94.1 mph. The pitch hit a four-year low in SwStr% and O-Swing%, which brought his K% down to 21.3%.

While Edwards is known for his explosive heater, the reliever’s fastball took a step back in 2018, losing cut action. It was still an effective pitch, garnering a 5.2 pVal, but it lost a lot of its shine last year (this ridiculous GIF notwithstanding).

Edwards’ hook followed suit with his fastball in losing overall effectiveness—most notably a drop of nearly 11 percentage points in its out-of-zone swing rate. Unlike its counterpart, the curve gained horizontal and vertical movement. It was still a useful whiff inducer, but something was a little off.
