The lefty Fry’s changeup sat at 86 mph, while his fastball averaged just under 93 mph. He threw it almost exclusively to right-handed batters. His fourth pitch, which he threw just 7.6% of the time, the changeup wasn’t terribly effective, netting a pretty modest 9.5% swinging-strike rate, 31.1% zone rate, and just a 29.4% chase rate. It did hold opposing hitters to a pretty meager .270 xwOBA, though.

Fry used his curveball a bit less this year, at 18.6% compared to 23.6% in 2018. It showed above-average drop, but returned a poor 5.6% swinging-strike rate. And it was not good at all at getting opposing hitters to expand the zone, generating just a 15.1% chase rate.

Fry’s four-seam fastball sat at just about 93 mph and generated an impressive 34% whiff rate, a big jump from 2018’s 20.4%. It also held opposing bats to a miserly .103 batting average.

Fry upped the usage of his slider from 31.8% in 2018 to a whopping 49.5% this past season. And the results were superb, as it generated a fantastic 44.4% whiff rate (20.1% swinging-strike rate), 35.5% zone rate, and a 37.4% chase rate. A borderline Money Pitch, it held hitters to a .176 batting average and .285 wOBA.
