Hector’s least-used pitch is his change. It averages 86 mph with some heavy arm-side run from his low 3/4 delivery. He used it mostly to attack lefties away in 2019, but it was more of a ground ball-getter than a swing-and-miss pitch.
Noesi’s curveball was nearly untouchable against righties in 2019. He only used it 17% of the time, but notched a 55.6% K rate with it and a .097 wOBA when using it against right-handers. They simply couldn’t touch it when it broke off the plate.
Noesi’s fastball is his go-to at 44% usage, sitting at 93 mph with good run. He uses it to work away from hitters, letting the ball run off the plate against lefties and letting it sneak back over the outside edge against righties. He could benefit from reducing the 13% walk rate, though.
Noesi uses the slider second-most at 31%. He’ll use it against batters from either side of the plate, but throws it twice as often against righties. He tries to bury it away, but struggles to get whiffs. He hangs a few too many over the heart of the plate, allowing hitters to barrel it up more than 10% of the time.
