Junis throws his fastball just over 50% of the time, but it resulted in a wRC+ of 183. It averages just over 91 mph but doesn’t seem to be fooling many batters, so look for him to increase his slider usage in 2020.
A boomerang-shaped slider, Junis was extremely effective with the pitch and it is his go-to putaway pitch. Opposing hitters slashed .170/.250/.294 off the pitch and Junis obtained a K% of 36.7. The pitch averages 81 mph.
Thrown only 5% of the time, Junis’ changeup averages 85 mph and has good movement. Hitters tend to hit it into the ground, which resulted in a 50% ground-ball rate.
Junis throws his curveball only 0.36% of the time, so more data is needed to make a conclusion on the pitch.
