Dustin May’s curveball gets league-average movement, but comes in a lot harder than your standard bender at 83 mph. Despite that, it’s not a pitch that hitters struggled with. Batters whiffed just 11% of the time, and he missed the zone with it at a 49% clip. It wasn’t a weapon for him in 2019.

Carrot Top, er, Dustin May’s changeup was a very good changeup in terms of results, as they tend to be fairly bad and rely too much on the defense to be useful. With the Dodgers and their staff having low BABIPs last year, his was valuable, as it had a .237 BABIP and .651 OPS against. An xBA of .285 makes me think it deserved to be worse, so expect it to regress a touch in 2019.

Used mostly in against lefties, May’s cutter was quite good in 2019 and allowed some weak contact, helping it have a fairly large popup rate. It was able to also get swinging strikes at a high rate, helping it look like a legit pitch for the future.
