Faria’s splitter was the lone bright spot of his season. The splitter was his chase pitch, as he threw it in the zone just 27.8% of the time, while getting a 23.5% SwStr% and 38.6% O-Swing rate.
Faria’s fastball had a tick and a half of increased velocity, but batters mashed the pitch, putting up a .386 ISO, .529 wOBA, and 243 wRC+.
Faria barely used his slider, as he appeared to lose his feel for the pitch, throwing it in the zone just 27.3% of the time after being above 45% in each of the past two seasons. When he did manage to throw it in the zone and batters swung, they had a 100% Z-Contact%.
