The changeup was a relatively effective pitch for Liriano in 2019, yielding a 1.6 pVAL on middling WOBA and wRC+ numbers. Opponents swung and missed 21.6% of the time on the cheese, with a healthy 26.9% K rate.

Never Liriano’s best offering, the fastball suffered from continued velocity decline in 2019 (down to a career low 92.9 mph), with opponents smacking the pitch for Liriano’s highest wOBA, wRC+ and BAA numbers.

Although it understandably isn’t at the level it was when it was one of the game’s best pitches, Liriano’s slider still baffles hitters: A 20.2% swinging-strike rate and a healthy 31.4% K rate are among the best in the game from a featured slider.
