Oswalt only threw 24 changeups in 2019. It sits at 85 mph with decent fade. He mostly used it to attack lefties off the plate and away, and managed to get a few whiffs.

Oswalt’s curve made an appearance just 15 times last year. It averaged 80 mph and has below-average break, making it look a bit slurvy. He used it almost entirely against righties, attacking low and away.

Oswalt mixes a four-seamer and sinker that sit at 91 with average movement. He attacks the arm-side with the sinker while running the four-seamer to the glove side. Neither was overly effective in 2019, allowing a combined .470 wOBA.

Oswalt’s fastball was quite underwhelming, averaging only 90 mph and allowing a 43% fly-ball rate. A low BABIP kept it from being destroyed, so Oswalt should avoid this pitch.

Oswalt’s sinker produced ugly results in 2018, allowing a .430 wOBA. It sported a below-average ground-ball percentage for a sinker and gave up too many fly balls, which helped give it a 20% HR/FB.

Oswalt’s “strikeout” pitch was his curveball, and it wasn’t the greatest at producing K’s, as it had an underwhelming swinging-strike percentage. He was, however, a tad unlucky with a high BABIP and HR/FB% on his curve.

His elite ground-ball pitch was Oswalt’s changeup, producing a grounder rate close to 60%. It also more than likely suffered a little misfortune, as his BABIP was .375. He limited the damage to it with a 0.053 ISO against and 16.7 infield fly-ball percentage.
