Odorizzi features four-seamers that hint at two-seam movement, and the pitch performed well (10.6 pVal). The pitch allowed a .225 BAA, 7.6 HR/FB%, and a 25.2 K%.

While Odorizzi didn’t use his slider as a strikeout pitch in 2018 (18.5%), he had some great batted-ball results, featuring a 42.1 IFFB% and a 5.3 HR/FB%.

For the second year in a row, Odorizzi’s splitter decreased in GB% (54.1% in 2016, 47.9% in 2017, 35.4% in 2018) and increased in BB% (4.9% in 2016, 6.2% in 2017, 7.4% in 2018).

Odorizzi struggled with control of his curveball in 2018, sporting a 16 BB% and a pVal of -3.6. The pitch had an 8.2 SwSt% and a 14.8 O-swing%, so not many hitters were fooled.

Odorizzi’s slider and cutter don’t have a major difference. The cutter has 2 mph of extra velocity, but both have really similar movement.
